foamInstallationTest Environment not configured
I am trying to install OpenFOAM on my Opensuse 10.3 32 bit. The problem is that when i run the foamInstallationtest, it always says environment variable not configured. I dont know why. I did everything according to the installation procedure.
1) Extract everything in the $Home/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/ directory
2) Edit the bashrc file by adding . $Home/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/bashrc at
the end of the file using Kate
3) source the bashrc by typing . $HOME/.bashrc in the terminal (close and open the
4) Run the foamInstallationTest
This i got fatal error because environment variable not configured.
I read all the posts but still cannot figure out why the variable wont configure. I tested on 3 different pcs running suse10.3 and 11 and still no go. I put the dot and space before the $HOME/OpenFOAM... I also tried different version of Openfoam (1.6 and 1.4) still get the same result.
I just resolved this issue.
In the terminal execute:
this depends on the editor you use, mine is nano.
then in the editor enter:
[ -f $foamDotFile ] && . $foamDotFile
Make sure you replace "/path/to" with the correct path to your OpenFOAM directory. Save and close the file
that got my installation working.
Scott, that is pretty much equivalent to what he is already doing. However, Mahziron, are you using OpenFOAM 1.5 or 1.6? I'm assuming you are entering a wrong path to the OpenFOAM bashrc. A problem might be that you have to extract the archives in $HOME/OpenFOAM/ and NOT $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM.1.X/.
You could use the OpenFOAM cookbook script (http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...-cookbook.html) if you are ok with it redownloading the code.
thanks scott & akidess
I am using 1.6 version. Anyway, i changed to Ubuntu and managed to install it using the cookbook script link provided by akidess. It took a few hours of compiling though 5 to be exact using my old notebook.
