Hello and sorry about this long message!

I'm totally new in using OpenFoam. :-)

I installed Openfoam 1.2 and the installation test passes without any faults, the icoFoam tutorial also runs without any problems:
sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM/frank/run/tutorials/icoFoam> ./Allrun
Running blockMesh on cavity
Running icoFoam on cavity

But when I want to start FoamX:
sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/bin> FoamX
Starting NameServer with inet:Wb:1234 ...
/home/sleur/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/bin/runFoamXHB: line 122: nsd: command not found

By searching the board, I allready found the hint to change e.g. my port number in $FOAMX_USER_CONFIG/FoamXClient.cfg
but this files and even the directory don't exist.

Can you please help me or give me an hint!! :-)

Thanks!

PS: When I run icoFoam I get following message.
sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/bin> icoFoam

Check whether you have nsd and whether you can execute it. (should be inside $FOAM_SRC/mico-xxx)

Check all arguments to nsd in runFoamXHB script that they are set correctly.

Hi, I have this nsd-problem on my new AMD6 machine.
Installation went OK.
In the mico-xxx I don't have nsd :-(

How is this possible?
and more important: What to do next?


thanks in advance for any help,

Joeri

FoamX works here on my Suse 10. I suspect your problem is that mico did not build properly.

do:

src

cd $MICO_PATH
rm -rf platforms
make distclean
./configure --prefix=$MICO_ARCH_PATH --disable-shared --without-x
make

and see what the problem is. If it build correctly, do:

make install

and you're in business.

Thanks for your response!

Meanwhile, I discovered that I did have nsd, but that the paths were incorrectly set. I removed 'AMD64' from several directory names, and now I can start FoamX without problems. It's probably better to add 'AMD64' in the variable-names that are used to generate the directory-names in the .bashrc-files. It seems to work now. I don't have time to run a test today, but I'll soon find out wheter or not this was the only problem. If not, I'll follow your procedure and eventually I'll rebuild mico.

kind regards,
Joeri

Cavityfine
 
Hello,
I have another problem, and not to me mapFields cavity in the case of the tutorial. I think the error is that targe mesh size is 1600 and not 1681 as it should. I did everything that I commanded the tutorial, copy the folder in cavityFine cavity blockMeshDict put measures in (40 40 1). Then I put startTime endTime 0.5 and put 1, also did testing with 0.5. In the case of cavity does not change anything. Agadezco to help me as quickly as possible, thanks.
