Hi bullmut,

That particular script has it's own thread for reports: OpenFOAM 1.6.x Installer for Ubuntu
So please, if after the solution bellow, the installation is still not working, please post on that thread!

Now, for the error you got: did you start a new terminal and run startFoam before running foamInstallationTest? If not, that's the problem!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hello guys,
I am trying to install OF on a external hard drive on which i installed Ubuntu 9.10. I used the script from the install cookbook. I used the same script a few weeks before and it worked fine on another computer. But now I think there is a problem wiith the git. I recieved this message while running the script

2010-06-06 16:07:38 (7.52 MB/s) - `ThirdParty-1.6.linuxGcc.gtgz' saved [138472985/138472985]

------------------------------------------------------
Untarring - this takes a while...

FIX up for Ubuntu 9.10
Fix up done

Initialized empty Git repository in /home/bernhard/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/.git/
fatal: http://repo.or.cz/r/OpenFOAM-1.6.x.git/info/refs download error -
It says it is a download error.
Is it a problem with the site or , with the script.
Please clarify

Thanks guys,
I just tried the script again and now the git has no problem. I guess it was a problem with the server. Now OpenFoam is compiling.

I hope it compiles with no problem. Just one question do you think since I am compiling on an external hard drive, I will have some problems in using paraFoam.

thanks again
bye
regards

Hi,

I installed OF-1.6 on my Ubuntu 10.04. (Compaq Presario, Intel Centrino 1.6GHz, 1.2GB DDR, old, but works). I used this link :
http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...okbook-19.html
Took about 7 hours in total!!

I tried to follow this tutorial, as I plan to learn OF from scratch :
http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/cavity.php

When I issue the command,
$ paraFoam
or
$ paraFoam -case $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity

I get this error :
created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/sn/.config/ibus/bus
Bus:pen: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
Segmentation fault

I am a Linux newbie and looking forward for some help with this!

Thanks!

Hi !

I've used the http://openfoam-ubuntu.googlecode.com/hg/installOF.sh
script several times with different parameters, and I also still get the same results as above:

rickard@SkunkWorks:/Data/FlygFiler/Projekt20100612$ startFoam
Building on 4 cores
rickard@SkunkWorks:/Data/FlygFiler/Projekt20100612$ paraFoam
created temporary 'Projekt20100612.OpenFOAM'
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/rickard/.config/ibus/bus
Bus:pen: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
Segmentation fault
rickard@SkunkWorks:/Data/FlygFiler/Projekt20100612$

A new fresh Linux install has taken place twice with no differens in results.

I think some thing has change sins 22/5 when the script was last updated.
Or has anyone any hints about how to fix the problem?

Regards Rickard

hello there,

thk Mads for the cookbook. the installation went very well, but i have a small problem, or my be is a bug.

after the installation, i run a tutorial and when i start the paraFoam to see the mesh, my paraview give me a white screen. when i start to move the mouse in the window where you can see the model, i was seeing the model but with frames; when i was stop moving the screen became white again.

i modify the script from

$OpenFOAM-1.6.x./bin/paraFoam

by adding at the top,under the comment lines:

export LC_ALL=C

i start again the paraview and it has the same white screen, but after a few second close and give me this error:

inginer@inginer-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity$ paraFoam
created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'

Hello again Ovidiu,

Wow, you may be new to Linux, but you've been trying different distributions for a while now

OK, the issue you are getting is related to the graphics card drivers. If you trail back this thread, you should pick up on similar errors that others have had in the past and how they fixed it.

The solution that I usually go for is to rebuild ParaView. For that, there are a few guides you could follow:
  1. Compiling Paraview 3.6.1 and the PV3FoamReader module - it is OpenCFD's instructions on what to do. Actually, they are still missing the "./" before "makeParaView"... it should be "./makeParaView".
  2. A somewhat long thread explaining on how to build Qt 4.3.5 and ParaView 3.6.1:
    Quote:
    Originally Posted by http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/blogs/wyldckat/232-list-threads-useful-building-openfoam-other-third-party-tools.html
    On how to build Paraview and Qt 4.3.5, including on how to use the cmake that comes with the package ThirdParty-1.6.linuxGcc.gtgz: New user needs help
    I say Qt 4.3.5, because the 4.5.1 version that comes with Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't always work
  3. Or you can use the experimental script available at "http://code.google.com/p/openfoam-ubuntu/":
    Code:
    wget http://openfoam-ubuntu.googlecode.com/hg/installOF_exp.sh
    chmod +x installOF_exp.sh
    ./installOF_exp.sh
    I say the experimental script, because the release version doesn't have the custom install option
    The steps to use the experimental script should be (after it's running):
    1. It asks if you allow it to run sudo... just say
      Code:
      yes
      to keep things simple
    2. It will ask for your user password, so it can install the dialog package.
    3. Then it will show you the about box. Just press Enter.
    4. Enter again for the OpenFOAM path, and Enter again for the login mode.
    5. Press the key c and the space key, then Enter. This chooses the custom mode.
    6. Press the key 2 and the space key, then Enter. This chooses to run the options for building ParaView.
    7. Press 1+space and 2+space and 4+space, then Enter. These choose to build Qt 4.3.5, ParaView 3.6.1 and build it with Python, because it could come in handy sometime
    8. Enter, so it will choose the download mirror on it's own. Don't worry, it won't download the same downloaded files again. it will only download the files it needs.
    9. The "Final Settings" screen show up... just press Enter and there it goes, full steam ahead 30min to 2-3h hours later, ParaView should be up and running!
And voilá... after these three possibilities, you should be able to build ParaView somehow By the way, my favorite possibility is the third one

Best regards,
Bruno

Wow, this was a pretty long thread. Since this thread pertains to cookbook for installing OpenFOAM 1.6, I am attempting to do so on an HPC machine, 64 bit and tcsh shell. Is there an install script that someone has developed that I can utilize? Thanks.
