Greetings JohnMichaelKane,

Check my post #316, which has a fixed version of the script. Mads hasn't gotten around to fix it yet.

Additionally, that last message from "make.log" only indicates that one or more applications didn't build.

Best regards,
Bruno

Good afternoon.

Thank you for taking time to answer. I will try the script in your post, using a clean install.

Additionally, I apologize. I may not have included the complete error message from "make.log"

Good day.

Hi guys,

Sorry for not updating the script, I have put Brunos latest updates in and I hope that it works now. Also I am sorry for website problems...clearly hosting my own website wasn't the way to go :-) I have now bought a commercial webhotel again and hopefully it will be up and running before easter. Thanks for all the encouraging comments and the great interest in this script, keep posting updates and user experiences.

Cheers,
Mads

Good Evening.

I re-ran the updated script, using a clean install.

Upon completion, a review of make.log, and terminal output showed no critical issues.

Additionally, I think the current script is spot on.

Thanks Bruno, and Mads.

Good afternoon

Using the updated script, and removing the call for git, as it seems to have been depreciated in 10.04, and leaving call for git-core. OpenFOAM managed to install on a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 beta1.

Upon completion, a review of make.log, and terminal output showed Base configuration ok. Critical systems ok.

This would seem to indicate, that with some minor modifications the script could work on the next Ubuntu release.

Once more, hi everyone!

I think this is directed more for Bruno and Mads...

I just did a clean install of Karmic 9.10 on my 64 bit machine. I ran your updated script (downloaded today) and it froze on me right after it said "Fix up bash done". It installed OpenFOAM correctly and configured everything but it just didn't exit to bash right after the "bash done" statement.

Below are the last statements from the installOF.log:

Code:
Summary
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Base configuration ok.

Critical systems ok.


done.

------------------------------------------------------
Fixing call for bash in tutorials (default is dash in Ubuntu)
Fix up bash done
------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
Fixing call for bash in tutorials (default is dash in Ubuntu)
Fix up bash done
------------------------------------------------------
Right after it hit the "Fix up bash done" it would not exit back into bash in the terminal.

I'm not sure if it was just my computer, but I just wanted to give you guys some feedback and comments. I am a huge fan of the work you both have done!

Greetings Aleksey,

Ah, you used Fabio's version, not Mads version!! Last I saw Fabio's version, he was still doing some tweaking! His thread is this one.

If you check the code changes here, you'll see that there is a weird bug that Fabio hasn't been able to fix yet. And only this weekend will I get some time to look at it properly to help the development.

Mads version is a more simplified version, pretty much as it is named: the cookbook script. You can copy paste code lines onto the terminal, easy to figure out how stuff works, and should work on most Ubuntu machines.
Fabio's version is aiming to be a more dedicated multi-option OpenFOAM installer for Ubuntu So, it's more related to a robotic cooking machine than a book

If Fabio doesn't fix it by Saturday, I might

Best regards,
Bruno

Which one is the lastest code, Mike? Where are you get it? Thank you a million.

Who finally sum up it?

Hi Mads, why I can not open your website about the installbook, now?

Hi Sandy

I believe there have been a few problems with Mads website recently
but i got the latest code (update yesterday i think) from
http://hvirvel.dk/OF/

If you would like to install openfoam1.6x on ubuntu 9.10 (32 bit) just use the following two lines of code (from Mads blog --> http://hvirvel.dk/)

wget http://hvirvel.dk/OF/installOF9.10

. ./installOF9.10

@Mike: Looking forward to that pint! I like weissbeer but can do with the occasional dark larger :-)

@Sandy: Are you still installing? :-)

@Bruno: "robotic cooking machine?" Hahaha

I hope that the script is accessible from my website, it is hosted by a commercial service now which is a bit more reliable than my setup (i kinda hate that).

It seems to me that it runs smoothly but let me know if it doesn't.

Cheers
Mads

Greetings to all,

@Mads, I've updated my post #316 and added the fixed installOF9.04 script, analogous to the fixes I made to installOF9.10.

Best regards,
Bruno

@Bruno: Okay. Not sure I follow you, though :-)

For the record (we like to hear about successful installs also :-)): I just installed Ubuntu 9.10-x64 on a new machine, and OpenFOAM using the script two days ago without any trouble. So, the script (still/again) works on such a fresh install.

Oh right, I omitted the train of thought
The update is because I got a pm referring to the installOF9.04 script from someone who didn't manage to get it working in Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64

Greetings to all,

Well, Peter reminded me of something that was missing in Mads install cookbook: the 32bit version didn't change OpenFOAM's bashrc to use 32bit architecture.
So attached are the fixed versions, with a little addon: multicore detection and setting WM_NCOMPPROCS to that value, thus enabling OpenFOAM to be built with as many cores as available... well, it limits to 8 cores max.

Oh, and I removed the git package from the apt-get list, because that package is transitional for git-core in both 9.04 and 9.10! So, try the 9.10 script version in the soon to be released Ubuntu 10.04 Just as JohnMichaelKane told us about in post #325

Best regards,
Bruno

Is there an error in my script for 32-bit? As mentioned I am sure that the 64-bit version works.

Greetings Mads.

Apologies for not responding promptly to your question.

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 32bit, upon completion of updates. I installed OpenFOAM using the script from wyldckat post #335.

I next ran
Code:
./foamSystemCheck.
Which returned.

Code:
Checking basic system...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shell:           /bin/bash
Host:            foamtesting-desktop
OS:              Linux version 2.6.32-22-generic-pae
User:            foamtesting


System check: PASS
==================
Continue OpenFOAM installation.
I than run airFoil2D benchmark, completion-time from log file.

Execution-time at time 500 = 22.99 s Clock Time = 23 s

Benchmark done on
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.0GHz
6GB DDR2 800

Additionally: Would it be possible to update the script, stating support on Ubuntu 10.04?

Good day.

Edit: I looked in the make.log, and spotted these lines at the end.
Code:
make[1]: Target `application' not remade because of errors.
make: *** [postProcessing] Error 2
make: Target `application' not remade because of errors.

John, can you look again if there is an error further up? Looks like something went wrong compiling the PV-Reader.

Greetings akidess
I had another look in make.log, and further up spotted these lines regarding PV3FoamReader.

Code:
make[5]: Target `CMakeFiles/PV3FoamReader_SM.dir/build' not remade because of errors.
make[4]: *** [CMakeFiles/PV3FoamReader_SM.dir/all] Error 2
make[4]: Target `all' not remade because of errors.
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: Target `default_target' not remade because of errors.
