Critical Error wxecuting foamInstallationTest
I try to install openFOAM 1.5-dev. If i execute icoFoam, it works properly, but when i try to make the installation test i receive this error:

WARNING: gcc version does not match gcc supplied with this release of OpenFOAM
Supplied version: 4.3.1
User version : ../configure
Minimum required: 4.2.0

gcc ...figure
WARNING: Conflicting installations:
OpenFOAM settings : /nfs/home/bruno/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/gcc-4.3.1/platforms/linux64/bin/gcc
current path : /usr/bin/gcc

gzip 1.3.12 /usr/bin/gzip
tar 1.19 /bin/tar
icoFoam 1.5-dev ...nFOAM-1.5-dev/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/icoFoam

Actually there's already an installed version (1.5) on the server and i guess that this could be the "Conflicting installations"..... but how can i fix the critical error?
Thanks in advance

I have almost the same error. Does someone have the solution, please? I'm searching in the whole forum, but I am not able to find an answer.

I tried this way: I opened (conteined within OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5.x/etc) and I changed the line "compilerInstall" from OpenFOAM to System. In this way my "critical error" disappeared.

inconsistent path definition
I have modified the to System to compile the code with Gcc version 4.3.3 in Ubuntu 9.0.4 distribution, and the baseline installation was deemed to be ok by foamInstallationTest. However, when checking for the icoFoam executable path, there was one inconsistent path definition with FOAM_APPBIN and FOAM_USER_APPBIN. I have not figured out how to fix the problem yet.

WARNING: Conflicting installations:

current path : /home/rlee/OpenFOAM/rlee-1.5/applications/bin/linuxGccSPOpt/icoFoam

Does anyone know how to fix this ?
