First of all, thank you peopl
First of all, thank you people for making OpenFOAM open source software. I have been looking for something like this to boost both my knowledge in CFD and general programming (.
I have run into som installation problems, but as a beginner in Linux I hope my stupid questions can be forgiven:
1. I run SuSE Linux 9,1 and since I read somewhere that you also use suselinux, I guessed the binary version of OpenFoam alone (without the source file) would work. It seemed however somthing was missing after decompresseing, i.a. no file of folder of " $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/.OpenFOAM-1.0/bashrc " could be found. It would be helpfull to know what a successful binary installation would look like, and what the command for starting up the program would be (guessing on "openfoam").
2. I got the idea to decompress both source- and binary file into the same HOME/OpenFOAM folder, now " $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/.OpenFOAM-1.0/bashrc " was present. I then sourced the .OpenFOAM-1.0/bashrc file by adding the following line to the end of my $HOME/.bashrc file:
$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/.OpenFOAM-1.0/bashrc and updatet the environment variables as described in the installation README file. When executing the foamInstallationTest, I get the error message:
FATAL ERROR: /lars/.OpenFOAM-1.0/bashrc does not appear to be sourced from:
You need the following at the end of your /lars/.bashrc file:
in addition to a number of other error messages.
3. I went on to try to build it all from the source file. I allready have gcc-3.3.? installed
via rpm-packages but have not been able to locate gcc-3.4? as rpm-package for suse 9,1. I would not
try to install gcc-3.4? via tarball since I allready had gcc-3.3? installed via rpm (recall I'm a Linux-beginner). After decompressing the sourcefile in its
right folder and typing /.Allwmake ,I get the following error messages:
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 3: cd: wmake: No such file or directory
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 3: makeWmake: command not found
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 5: cd: src: No such file or directory
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 5: Allwmake: command not found
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 7: cd: applications: No such file or directory
./OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/Allwmake: line 7: Allwmake: command not found
even though " HOME/Lars/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.0/wmake " and its files is present.
I realize that my problems may be due to my system setup and to my very slight knowledge of Linux, still I would be very thankful for some help.
Hi Lars, looks like you ad
looks like you add to your .bashrc
(so you missed out the '.' in front which makes all the difference)
Amazing, thats all that was t
Amazing, thats all that was to it. I just went through the first tutorial, and all run smoothly.
