With assistance i have successfully compiled OpenFOAM1.6 from source on ubuntu 9.10 with the system compiler(not OF supplied). Now I am now trying to compile the most recent git version.

.................................................. ....................
Here is the process(i think):

1. Download the git version to the OF directory
http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/download.html
(does the git version need the downloaded source packs in addition or is this git folder all that is needed??)

2. Let the system know where it is at:
export FOAM_INST_DIR=/home/eric/OpenFOAM.gcc
source etc/bashrc

3. Change compiler to system compiler(optional)
gedit etc/settings.sh

4. Compile
./Allwmake
.................................................. ....................

Initially I got an error where the compiler couldnt find ThirdParty-1.6.x
I fixed this (maybe) by creating a link to my source pack folder
ln -s ~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6 ~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6.x


The new error says:

CMake Error: your CXX compiler: "/bin/c++" was not found.
Please set CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name.
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!


I looked and sure enough "/bin/c++", but "/usr/bin/c++" did.
so i used the code:

export CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=/usr/bin/c++
source etc/bashrc

But it didnt have any effect on the error outputs of ./Allwmake


Thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I figured out that through about 4 links "/usr/bin/c++" eventualy points to " /usr/bin/g++-4.4"

Maybe i should point the compiler somewhere else...
