Fabian ,, i did complete compilation and it takes nearly 5 hours !! useing that command /Allwmake and i saw the giant "make.log" file

Bruno , thanks for this links ,, i wonder if the "OpenFOAM 1.6 User Guide" have a pdf approach so i can download it all , and print it all , it will be more easy to learn than reading from screen in my opinion

best regards

You already have the PDF in your installation! Check the folders OpenFOAM-1.6/doc/guide*, one for A4 paper format and another for Letter paper format, of both the User and Programmer Guides!!
Also, on one of the links, you have the downloadable PDF versions.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hello Sayed,

Uhm... I have a faint memory about some other version of the document, but it's only a fragmented memory... you can try searching this forum for it.

Anyhow, you can also try using pdfedit, which is available for OpenSUSE directly from here, or see here on which and how to add repositories in OpenSUSE (namelly, the packman repository).
With pdfedit you might be able to change the base fonts of the pdf and force it to have a more readable font.

Best regards,
Bruno

Default Temporary Work-Around for Mandriva "source .bashrc" TMOUT issue

Sayed,

It looks like you found a solution that works for you (changed distributions), but I am sure there are others out there that use Mandriva. Hopefully this post will be of some use to them. I have tried quite a number of linux distributions, and have yet to find a "perfect" one. They all have their limitations. I would suggest that if a person is looking for a distribution ready to go with OpenFOAM, CAELinux fits the bill nicely.

In previous versions of Mandriva, I had managed to find where TMOUT was defined for msec (which seems to be what prevents a user from using the source command on a modified .bashrc file). I have not yet found it on Mandriva 2010, the distribution I am currently using.

The work-around I am currently using:
create a new file (for the sake of this post, let's call it .bashrc2, put it in the same directory as your .bashrc file)
Put the line:
. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc
into it, save the file.
Open a terminal and type:
source .bashrc2
That terminal window now has the OpenFOAM commands sourced. Go to the directory with your simulation and you are ready to run.
Please note that the source command works for that terminal window and that terminal window only. If you close the terminal window, you will need to run "source .bashrc2" again.

If you also happen to be running SalomeMeca, you could put the line for the source command in there also.

When I find a more satisfactory solution, I will try to remember to post it.

Wesley
