Hi Manoj


As already posted above

Quote:
Note that from June 2010 Paraview will be a separate program from OpenFOAM and thus paraFoam will no longer work. This was a decision I've made since I feel the performance from the parallel reader found here is superior to the one in OpenFOAM. It also means that you can use Paraview without OpenFOAM and it allows me to keep Paraview more up to date. To use Paraview with the new reader just create an empty file in your case folder "touch casename.foam" and open this file using Paraview.

@alberto

csh settings should now be generic when installing from centFOAM.py script.


also gmsh-2.5.0 with OCC support and paraview-3.10.1 is now avaliable.

Ahh yes

This is because I built openmpi with infiniband support which we have in our cluster.

try running it like this

Code:
mpirun --mca btl ^openib --mca btl_tcp_if_include eth0 --hostfile hostfile -n 2 simpleFoam -parallel
This disables infiniband but I do not know if it will run.

If it doesn't I will make a version without infiniband.

Hello linnemann

I'm trying to install openFoam 2.0.x in rocks 5.3 (centOs 5.6) but when I tried to run:

python centFOAM.py -p /opt/OpenFOAM --OF20

I got the folowing error:

Code:

 and extracted to /opt/OpenFOAM
Press enter to continue

I realy dont know what happend because I put the path=/opt/OpenFOAM, and the scrip tries to modify a file that is in opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/bashrc.

Thanks for your help, and great work

Hi

Ive just installed a fresh version of Centos in VB.

As you can see from this line

Code:
installing OpenFOAM-2.0.x to /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x
You have a double OpenFOAM directory which will just add to confusion.

The error in the script was that it I forgot to add "OpenFOAM" to the path so that this subdir would be created automatically. And also the bash file path should be changed accordingly.

So the correct way to run the script would be

Code:
python centFOAM.py -p /opt --OF20
Then you will have OF installed in

/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x and ThirdParty in /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.0.x

It will also work with /opt/OpenFOAM but then you have double OpenFOAM subdirs.

Please download the new one and try again.

Thank you very much for the feedback.

Thanks Linnemann

I actually used the manual installation and it worked.

Great job with the script

Hello,

First, thank you for the help already posted, because in many cases solves the problems and if not, it helps identifying it.

I am trying to run OpenFOAM in parallel in several nodes. Each node alone can run the case in parallel without problem when executed with "runParallel" instruction. Also, each node alone can run the case in parallel when executed with the "mpirun" instruction, but in this case before the calculations began it displays the next error. But when I try several nodes it display the same error as in the previous case, for each node and the calculation does not begin (Error displayed at the end of this reply).

The OpenFOAM version is 2.1.x, the system is Red Hat 5.7 and it has not infiniband (as I was told by the person which is in charge of the server) so I tried the solution sugested by Niels but it did not work (Error displayed at the end of this reply).

I have also found other sugestion by Niels but I am unsure of the changes required:

Ahh yes, our cluster has infiniband so thats why it complains that it cant find it.

one solution is to change the Allwmake script in the Thirdparty folder.

uncomment line 102 where it says --with-openib.

Delete the platforms/linux64Gcc45/openmpi-1.5.3 folder and run ./Allwmake again.

This should then compile without infiniband.

The other solution that you could try beforehand is to run mpi as described at the very bottom on this page http://pkg-ofed.alioth.debian.org/ho...d-howto-6.html this forces openmpi to use tcp-ip.

I will compile a version without inifiniband and upload if youd like.
The refered line of code it is not at line 102, and it is inside a IF sentence. Should I just uncomment the exact line or the entire IF sentence?

Also, any other suggestion or orientation would be very appreciated.

Thank all of you for your help and time.

Hello again,

I have changed the hostfile from:

Jose1@flu cpu=3
Jose1@nodo19 cpu=3

to:

Jose1@nodo19 cpu=3
Jose1@flu cpu=3

and now it runs. I have to do some checks but it seems to be correct so, Does the order in the hostfile matters? (For me apparently yes)
I think it is important to point that "flu" is the master and "nodo19" is supposed to be the slave.
