Has anyone installed OpenFOAM on HP machines yet?

Is it difficult to port the code to an HP machine like HP ES45?

Try installing Linux on the machine, you will find porting OpenFOAM to it much easier if you do.

I know porting to linux would be easier, but the thing is I cannot change the OS (I'm not admin). So, I better start with getting gcc running on the machine and then try to compile all the code . Any special hint on this?

I have ported FOAM to OSF1 for customers in the past and it was a very disagreeable experience, not quite a bad as the awful HPUX but not nice. Basically there are lots of problems with the OS, not just the C++ compiler which sucks but also make, as, ld etc. and you would have to compile all those first. Expect many problems and to waste a lot of time as I did and even then you may not succeed.

When releasing OpenFOAM I decided not to support OSF1 anymore because it's a dead OS and Linux is available for those machines now and so you should upgrade (or get your admin people to upgrade) to that.

Compaq must have a site/disk somewhere with lots of precompiled gnu utilities (for hpux I know the HP porting centre). So tar,ld,as,gcc,awk etc. Install all of these and make sure you have them first in your path and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

All this even before you unpack OpenFOAM.

I guess other than gcc (which I should install gcc3.4.3 on it at least), all other commands are there, right? or ...?

% which make
/usr/bin/make
% which gmake
/usr/local/bin/gmake
% which gcc
/usr/local/bin/gcc
% which tar
/usr/bin/tar
% which as
/usr/bin/as
% which awk
/usr/bin/awk
% gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/alphaev67-dec-osf5.1/3.3/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.3/configure
Thread model: single
gcc version 3.3
