Hi all

I've created install/update script for OpenFOAM-1.6.x and OpenFOAM-1.5-dev on sourceforge.

This should make installation much easier for CentOS/RHEL/SL 5.x 64.

The script can also update the current installation to the newest git/svn.

The update will put a local snapshot on your computer and the first time you update it will recompile everything. The next updates should be faster because it retains the update folder and only update the files.

Please post your findings on the official centFOAM forum.

Any idea if it could work on CentOS 4.x?

Hi

I have no idea since 4.x is outdated in my world :-)

I have although compiled 1.4.1 and 1.5 on RHEL 4.x so it is certainly doable. This is a very long time ago and I cant remember the steps.

If possible I would see if the IT people wouldn't be interested in upgrading your cluster to ROCKS 5.3. There is really a big gain in upgrading.

This is what I did, but I'm also in a position where I maintain our cluster install.

Hello linnemann,

that would be pretty good to get OpenFOAM and the most pre-processing/meshing Software very easy installed with your script. So I made a fresh installation of centOS-5.4.
But I don't know how to run the script ?

Hi


Yep you just have to put a space after the centFoamInstall command.

like

Code:
 ./centFoamInstall yumDependencies
or

Code:
 ./centFoamInstall installOpenFOAM

Well thats funny,,

The script is setup to check if you are root when running the yumDependencies option.

You could just open the script and comment the part about root in the yumDependencies function.

I've done it on my own computer at everything is fine.

It could be that you logged in as root using the "su" command. This will not work at the terminal still thinks you are the "user" and not root.

Logging in like so
Code:
ssh -Y root@localhost
will give you the right permissions. Or logging in as root from the login window.

Hello Linnemann,

i prefur to work with discretizer http://www.discretizer.org as "GUI" (pre-processing-Tool) for OpenFOAM.
When i install the actual binary and start discretizer(_setup) the desktop freezes completely (no more action possible).
Is it possible for you to integrate discretizer in your installation script so that it will work in the future ?

Regards
Gerhard

Hi Gehard

I do not have any issues by just downloading the binary and then running

Code:
sh discretizer64.sh
I do not need to install, I can easily create simple stuff. Please report back. As of now I wont be including this into CentFOAM. There are way too many dependencies with specific version numbers (which aren't in default CentOS). And since the binary version is working I do not see a need to compile it for CentOS. I only include programs in CentFOAM if a working binary isn't available. You could do it yourself using the instructions on the homepage for discretizer here (Ubuntu)

Hi Linnemann,
I know that your binary package should work also under CentOS 5.4. But it would be nicer if you could update your build for CentOS 5.4

Waiting for your files
OpenFOAM-1.6.x_CentOS-5.4_x86-64.tar.gz
ThirdParty-1.6.x_CentOS-5.4_x86-64.tar.gz

Thank you for your work,

Regards,

Hi Vnpenguin

As there is no problem with the current version on 5.4 besides the name containing 5.3. It would be more right to just name it 5.x, but this is how I did it since I hadn't thought it through

When CentOS 5.5 comes out I will be cleaning the whole project up and do a complete recompile of both 1.6.x and 1.5-dev, and maybe 1.7 if its out by that time.

For now you will have to live with the "wrong" naming convention.

Hi

Code:
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
This means that the archives was not downloaded correctly.
Also you have the error

Code:
2010-04-17 11:56:11 ERROR 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable.
Which could mean SF was down at the time. I know sourceforge had some scheduled maintenance, but I don't know if that's why you get the errors.

The script is working fine the packages is just not able to be downloaded so it is a connection problem.

If I were you I would start over and delete the archives in /tmp.
