Installation of OpenFOAM-1.6 on Ubuntu 9.10
Iḿ quite new to Ubuntu but I'd like to install OpenFOAM on it, so I simply follow this simple how to-guide:
For those of you that don't want to press the link:
May I suggest following Mads cookbook? The thread is dedicated to it is this one. See his signature for the link to the cookbook scripts.
Additionally, you should take into account which architecture version of Ubuntu are you using? 32 or 64 bit? And are you building the 64 bit version of OpenFOAM? I say this, because you unpacked the 32 bit binaries, but are trying to build the 64 bit version of OpenFOAM!
To build the 32 bit version of OpenFOAM, you should edit the file "$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc" and change WM_ARCH_OPTION from 64 to 32.
Either way, if you don't feel like following Mads cookbook, the missing commands after unpacking the ThirdParty-1.6.linuxGcc.gtgz file are (from post #282):
I am new in ubuntu 9.04 and I am trying to get paraView. I followed following procedure after sourcing the file OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc.
Compile ParaView. Ship into OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6 and execute
Link OpenFOAM ParaView reader and ParaView.
:/$ cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
But now I am getting following error msg and I'm stucked in it...Pls help m in regard
