I compile the OpenFOAM-1.2 sou
I compile the OpenFOAM-1.2 source by unzipping OpenFOAM-1.2.General file only(don't unzip the OpenFOAM-1.2.linuxGcc4Opt file), but it looks fine except the installation test script about the FOAM-1.1.

So I want to know, is it a successful installation without unzipping the OpenFOAM-1.2.linuxGcc4Opt file?

I am a fresher both in FOAM and Linux, and please give me some advice.

Thank you very much.
