Hello everyone,

First and foremost... A Very Happy New Year to you all :-)!

Just wanted to report, that I just completed compiling OpenFOAM-1.5-dev on my laptop running Fedora 12.... specific details of the build are:

** OpenFOAM version: 1.5-dev SVN Ver. 1563
** Operating System: Fedora 12 (32-bit)
** GCC version: 4.4.2
** ParaView version: 3.7.0 (CVS update: 14.12.2009)
** Parallel library: OpenMPI

In order to compile successfully, I had to make the following changes to the source code, which have been mentioned earlier by users compiling OpenFOAM-1.5-dev on recent Ubuntu and Solaris systems with GCC 4.x.x compilers:

1. At line number 43 in the file: <OpenFOAM src>/OpenFOAM/include/OSspecific.H, the following line was added:

#include <stdint.h>

Code:
\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

#ifndef OSspecific_H
#define OSspecific_H

#include "fileNameList.H"
#include "long.H"

#include <stdint.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
2. The file: <OpenFOAM src>/meshTools/triSurface/surfaceFeatures.C was modified at line number 769 to add on a dynamic_cast for "samples":

Code:
    
    // Build tree out of all samples.
    octree<octreeDataPoint> ppTree
    (
        treeBoundBox(dynamic_cast<const UList<point>&>(samples)),      // overall search domain
        octreeDataPoint(samples),   // all information needed to do checks
        1,          // min levels
        20.0,       // maximum ratio of cubes v.s. cells
        100.0       // max. duplicity; n/a since no bounding boxes.
    );
A similar occurance at line 870 of the same file was modified in the same manner.


** NOTE #1: Since I use my own compile of Paraview-3.7.0, I had to copy the plugins generated by PV3FoamReader (libPV3FoamReader.so and libPV3FoamReader_SM.so) into the plugins folder of the ParaView-3.7.0 install which is located within the "bin" folder.

** NOTE #2: I typically use Paraview for postprocessing my OpenFOAM simulations with the plugin created by Takuya Oshima, but I always have both plugins (the one from Takuya and the one included with OpenFOAM) in running condition so that I can test both..... Since Takuya's plugin works with the file extension ".foam" and the one in OpenFOAM with ".OpenFOAM", both plugins co-exist happily without any conflicts.


Have a wonderful year 2010....

Philippose

Hello,

For the sake of closure on this thread, the latest SVN version of OpenFOAM-1.5-dev: SVN 1570.... has all the source code modifications required to allow for compilation on gcc-4.4.x without having to make any more changes.

For those facing an issue with errors of the nature: "*** missing separator......." refer to the following thread:

OpenFOAM-1.5-dev SVN15xx with gcc-4.4.2

Have a nice day!

Philippose
