Hello, everybody
I'm a complete beginner of OF and Linux. I tried my best to install OpenFOAM 1.6 on ubuntu 9.04 according to the readme. However, I excute the command foamInstallationTest in the /bin after the installation, I get the messages as follows:

Hi cnlimin,

check your depencies, especially gcc.
Check, if the needed software is installed or not AND check the versions.
If needed, update your software. Do it with your favourit graphical
package manager, if you don't want to use shell-software.

Dear az_monger,
Thank you very much for your advices.
I upgraded the softrwares including the gcc, python, qmake, camke and so on. The messages seem to tell me gcc have been installed in the wrong place.

Any way, thank you again.

Best.
M. Li

Hi, fossy,
I have installed OF 1.6 according to the following steps:
1)Download and move the files into the $HOME/OpenFOAM directory
2)extract ALL FOUR downloaded files within $HOME/OpenFOAM directory by:
tar -xzf OpenFOAM-1.6.General.gtgz
tar -xzf OpenFOAM-1.6.linux64GccDPOpt.gtgz
tar -xzf ThirdParty-1.6.General.gtgz
tar -xzf ThirdParty-1.6.linux64Gcc.gtgz
3)Then you can execute the foamSystemCheck script in the bin/ directory to check your system:
cd $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/
./foamSystemCheck
4)Environment variable setting (details see Section 3 of official Readme). for bash users:
sudo gedit $HOME/.bashrc
then add following line to the .bashrc file (there is a space between the dot and $)
. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc
after saving and returning termial, execute following command:
. $HOME/.bashrc
5) If everything is OK, you have successfully installed OF except paraView and you can test the setup: $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/foamInstallationTest
6) If you want to post-processe with paraView, you need to compile it.
before compiling, please confirm you have installed Qt and cmake 2.6. For ubuntu 9.04 users, executing command "sudo apt-get install libq4-dev" in terminal can finish the qt setup. However, cmake 2.6 need to download.
after installation of qt and cmake 2.6, execute following command in the ThirdParty-1.6 directory of OF to compile paraview:
sh makeParaView

All above are my installation processes, hoping they can hellp you.

Good luck!

Dear cnlinin, M. Li and fossy,

I am experiencing the same problem. But I am installing by building the source. According to your above steps, I guess you installed the binary, instead of building the source. If it is the case, OpenFOAM-1.6.General.gtgz ThirdParty-1.6.General.gtgz would be unnecessary. Can you share me more details ? Thanks.

Hi Niudie,

It may be that you need to tell OpenFOAM to use its own gcc and not the system's. You can do this by going to

~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-<your_version>/etc

and opening the settings.sh or settings.csh file (depending on your shell) and changing in lines 93-96

Code:
# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WM_COMPILER_INST = OpenFOAM | System
# WM_COMPILER_INST=OpenFOAM
into

Code:
# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# WM_COMPILER_INST = OpenFOAM | System
WM_COMPILER_INST=OpenFOAM
Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Gijs

Gijs,

Thanks a lot. I did it that way and is suffering from the lib linking problems, as mentioned in another thread. Thanks.
