I updated the how-to's on my blog to reflect the changes required to build OpenFOAM 1.7:
Both contain updated instructions for the native VTK reader.

Thanks to Martin for his help to build on openSUSE 11.3.

Best,

Hi Alberto,

I start with a fresh installation of Suse 11.2 x64 and I have followed your guide step by step without success. I have a good experience with Ubuntu (1.7.x compiled without problems) but with Suse is the first time and I am a little bit lost...

I post a little piece of my log file, there are thousands of the same errors for a lots of applications..

Quote:

At the end, the process stops with the error "impossible to create application folder" or something like that..

Hope you will help me
Thank in advice

Hi,

hard to tell from that error message. Could you please run ./Allwmake again and post the first occurrence of an error, or the whole log file as attachment?

Additionally, you might want to check the md5sum of the source package you downloaded, to be sure it is not damaged.

Best,

Best,
I have checked it, I don't know the reason why the log file is different from the console screen...What's happen?? I have run ./Allwmake > log.make

Just run ./Allwmake and press Ctrl-C when the first errors appear, then cut and paste that in a file. :-)

It cannot find rules to make that. Did you check the package integrity (or are you using git sources)?

1.7.0 version,compiled without issues, could be a problem related to git version?
I have had some problems to download git version with Suse; for this reason I have dowloaded git version to an USB key using Ubuntu-PC, then copy-paste the folder on Suse-PC and finally update the folder by git-pull command..What do you think about that? I have just installed the git-core package on SUSE but if I try to download the git version through Suse I got the error posted:

Hi, Alberto,

I installed the just-released OpenSUSE 11.3 64 bit OS. OF-1.7.x (from git) compiled successfully, I also recompiled paraview and paraFoam. A tutorial case completed without any error. However, each time I started paraFoam, paraview ended up frozen. I noticed that you installed 11.3 RC, I am wondering if you run into the same problem.

It works fine on 11.3, but I do not have any problem also on 11.2, so I'm not sure.

Best,

Hi, Alberto,

I never have any problem with 11.2. I am wondering if you can do a quick test. After loading the case by starting paraFoam, can you re-set the Opacity to say 0.3? And see if your paraview freezes or not? This problem happens to me every time. If I do not re-set the Opacity, paraview seems to be fine.

Thanks!

Hi Alberto,
I have come to the conclusion that you have successfully worked with openSUSE platform, OpenFOAM and ParaView.
As a newbie in Linux I use openSUSE 11.2, OpenFOAM 1.7.0 and I am trying to install ParaView 3.8.0. My relating thread is on:

Installation problem with ParaView 3.8.0 on openSUSE 11.2

I am wondering whether a straightforward way for installing (functionally) ParaView 3.8.0 exists.

Could you please provide me with a hint?

Thank you,
Menandros

I tested on one tutorial, and it seems to work correctly. Try checking what paraview writes in your terminal to see if you can figure out what's going on.

Hi, I simply followed the procedure linked at the beginning of this thread.
I do not use paraFoam, but the pvFoam reader on the wiki however, because it seems to be more reliable on different platforms, and less sensitive to the versions of the libraries.
