Install openFOAM 1.6 on debian 32bit - blockMesh: command not found
 
Hi there!
First of all: I've read a lot of threads, tried a lot of solutions, but nothing helped.
I have installed openFOAM 1.6 according to the readme.html. Running the foamInstallationTest says:
Quote:

Base configuration ok.

The foam installation contains 2 critical error(s).
And scrolling to the errors:
Quote:

Third party software
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Software Version Location
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
gcc 4.3.3
WARNING: Conflicting installations:
OpenFOAM settings : /home/teissier/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux/bin/gcc
current path : /usr/bin/gcc

WARNING: Conflicting installations:

current path :

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If I continue in the installation-(test)-process [copying tutorials, changing the directory..] I got until "blockMesh". There he says:
Quote:

bash: blockMesh: command not found.
What I have already done:
- Changing the link of \usr\bin\gcc to the openFoam-gcc according to the error-message

- Running the ./Allmake (no errors)

- Doing everything of the readme (bashrc, directories,..)

- Eating a lot of chocolate

- Saying my boss 20 times "It will work in a minute"

My Enviroment
Debian 5.0
i386

:confused: Please help me - Thank you

Solved
 
Yahoo! Finally I found the solution in this Thread:

The order of installing seems to be VERY important.
