Hi,
compile with the following instruction:

./Allwmake >&log

Open the log file and see if there is some errors. I think that you don't have some packages.
Regards.
Enry.

Dear OF users,
I'm trying to compile OF-1.5-dev on my ubuntu 8.10. The link (OpenFOAM 1.5 dev)supplied by Enry has been useful but I need your last help to study the compilation's log. Now compilation of both Third Party and OF1.5-dev has been carried out but the foamInstallationTest outputs:

Base configuration ok.

The foam installation contains 1 critical error(s).

Review the output for warning messages and consult
the installation guide for trouble shooting.


Trying a tutorial I had no problems but I'm afraid I will have in compiling applications (I read a gcc conflict problem)
Here attached my log...can someone have a look. Can you please help me to fix foaminsatllationtest problem?
Thanks

Go to .../OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/etc/settings.sh and find :

# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Try to replace the following line into /OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/etc/settings.sh

# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | System
compilerInstall=OpenFOAM
# compilerInstall=System

instead of

# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | System
# compilerInstall=OpenFOAM
# compilerInstall=System


I had your own problem and I solved It in this way. Somebody says to replace with

# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | System
# compilerInstall=OpenFOAM
# compilerInstall=System

but It doesn't work on my computer.
Good luck!

Hi All,

I am having an issue compiling the source code as per the procedure given in InstallOF-1.5-dev.sh Thanks for this (I had to change it slightly as the ThirdParty files were downloaded as a file called "download" instead of "ThirdParty.General.gtgz").

After that everything worked well and most of the compilation works except that I see errors late in the compilation stage related to a missing -lOpenFOAM library.

After searching through the log the first error that I get is (snippet from log file)

+ wmake libso OpenFOAM
linux64GccDPOpt/options:14: *** missing separator. Stop.
wmake error: file 'Make/linux64GccDPOpt/objectFiles' could not be created

I then get a number of errors (much later) as follows

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lOpenFOAM

I suspect the later errors are all related to the first one.

Does anyone have ideas for what I should try to get around this?

I have *not* tried using the line below yet but I will try this next.
compilerInstall=OpenFOAM

For the record my ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/src/OpenFOAM/Make/options file is listed below. I am not sure what if anything is wrong with it.

EXE_INC = \
-I$(WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR)/zlib-1.2.3

LIB_LIBS = \
$(FOAM_LIBBIN)/libOSspecific.o \
-L$(FOAM_LIBBIN)/dummy -lPstream \
-lz

// Special rule for global/global.Cver:
// We force the recompilation so the revision number will always be up-to-date
$(OBJECTS_DIR)/global.o: FORCE

FORCE:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Paul.

I think that I have solved this problem.
All I needed to do was add a carriage return at the end of the last line so that the file was now 14 lines instead of 13 lines. (i.e. I just edited the file and hit return on the last line)

Hope this helps anyone else who encounters the same problem.

Cheers,

Paul.
