Hello everyone,

I've been trying to install OpenFOAM 1.6 32bit on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn by following the readme and all goes well until the ". $HOME/.bashrc" line.

Terminal shows the following:

mstfl@mstfl:~$ . $HOME/.bashrc
bash: /etc/bash_completion: Permission denied

Any ideas how to remedy this?

Thanks

This may or may not be your problem, but could your permissions on your OpenFOAM directory be messed up? If you used a sudo command when downloading the source package it could have ended up with root only permissions. If that is the case you'll need to go in and add permissions for your user.

I actually downloaded the files on a different computer, put them on a flash drive and then copied them to my Ubuntu computer. Might this cause problems?

Maybe I'm leading you in the wrong direction. If you just close and open your terminal it automatically runs your .bashrc on startup making it unnecessary to source it with . $HOME/.bashrc. If you have edited the .bashrc file already as instructed in the README, try just restarting your terminal and moving to the next step, which I think is running foamInstallationTest.

When I run the foamInstallationTest terminal gives me the following:

mstfl@mstfl:~$ /home/mstfl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/foamInstallationTest
Executing /home/mstfl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/foamInstallationTest:


Checking basic setup...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FATAL ERROR: OpenFOAM environment not configured.

Please refer to the installation section of the README file:
<OpenFOAM installation dir>/OpenFOAM-1.6/README
to source the OpenFOAM environment.

Also the last few lines of my $HOME/.bashrc file looks like this

# sources /etc/bash.bashrc).
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
/etc/bash_completion
fi

. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc

I really appreciate your help sripplinger as I am new to Linux.

Where have you installed the sources of OpenFoam?

By sources are you referring to all the .gtgz files? If so they're in $HOME/OpenFOAM

You are logged in as a user?
Where do you get the .bashrc from? Was this file allready existant as you add the line
$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc?
Normaly there is no .bashrc in a users home directory as far as I know for ubuntu. So you could create a new empty file and add the line mentioned above. Than type bash in your terminal and OpenFoam should work

Hi Fabian, I am logged in as a user, "mstfl"

The /home/mstfl/.bashrc file was already there when I looked for it according to the readme.

I'll try making a new blank .bashrc file as per your instructions.

Thanks,
Jon

Well, making a blank .bashrc file did get rid of the "permission denied" readout but the installation test still didn't work.

I downloaded all the files again and started a new clean install and it seems to be working now.

Thanks sripplinger and Fabian,
Jon

Sorry to disturb, but I would like to know if anyone has encountered the problem.
when I "tar xzf OpenFOAM-1.6.linuxGccDPOpt.gtgz", it stopped with:
gzip: stdin:invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I can not find the problem. Is there anybody could give me some advice please? thanks a lot.

Wendy

Greetings Wendy,

Download the file again, because it's corrupted
To confirm it's corrupted, do:
Code:
md5sum OpenFOAM-1.6.linuxGccDPOpt.gtgz
And compare the result with the value shown in OpenFOAM's download page here.

Best regards,
Bruno
