Hi All, I recently dowloaded
 
Hi All,
I recently dowloaded and installed OpenFoam 1.2 along with Gcc, paraview 2.2.0 and java. I unpacked the files just as the readme file suggested and everything seemed to work and the foamInstallationTest confirmed this. I am now going through the cavity tutorial and I have found that paraview will not work. I get the following:

paraFoam $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/icoFoam cavity
/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/bin/paraFoam: line 57: 8289 Illegal instruction paraview paraFoam.pvs

or if I just try and load paraview by itself I get the same illegal instruction:

paraview
Illegal instruction

My system is an AMD32 bit and I am using Ubuntu linux, could this be causing any issues? I'm not sure. I'm a bit of a linux novice so any advice on what to look for would be appreciated.

-Cheers

I should also add that paravie
 
I should also add that paraview does begin to start up and a intro screen pops up for a couple of seconds but then it closes and I get the 'Illegal Instruction' output.

has anyone else experienced this?

try to 'unsetenv' the environm
 
try to 'unsetenv' the environment variable

PV_INTERFACE_PATH

This will prevent paraview from loading the Foam reader module.

Now you can use 'foamToVTK' to generate vtk files.

2) as for why the Foam reader does not work I have no idea.
