Hi all,

Just downloaded OpenFOAM-1.5 and installed the package by following the README up to Step 5. When I ran foamInstallationTest it showed a few "no" here and there but did not complain about any error in particular. I then copied the tutorial files as instructed in Step 6 and here comes the problem: when I type in blockMesh I got the following error message:

blockMesh: /lib64/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3.4' not found (required by /home/peterh/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/lib/linux64GccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so)

I am new to Linux so I could have made some mistake somewhere, the trouble is I'm not proficient enough to pin point the error. Is anyone having similar problem? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!

Additional Info: I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux so I've downloaded and installed the 64-bit packages. I've also attached the result from foamInstallationTest below:

I guess you should compile from source.

Thanks for the reply Lin.

Sorry for asking this trivial question (I've only started using Linux since 4 days ago): how do I compile from the source code?

I'm doing some tutorials to get myself up to speed with Linux, but I'm still very green at the moment and I have no idea how to compile from the source. I would really appreciate a step by step instruction on how to do this if it's available.

Read the error message. A library is missing, so use the package manager on your system and install it.
