Review the output for warning messages and consult

...can anyone tell me how to set environment variables and what exactly is the problem.

Hi,

Under $HOME/OpenFOAM, did you create a folder called linux, placed gcc, java, paraview tgz files under linux, and then unpack the tgz files there?

The very first time I installed OpenFOAM, I put all the downloaded files under OpenFOAM and got similar errors.
