Hi all,

I have OpenSUSE 11.1 on a quad-core AMD box. OpenFOAM 1.6.x was working just fine, but I decided to go to the new 1.7.0 version.

I upgraded many apps, and now I got:

Attached is a file with three samples of the errors extracted from the make.log file. Compilation goes well, but suddenly some errors show up and I really don't know what to do. I tried a lot of things based on previous threads, but nothing seems to work.

Comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Paulo

Hi Martin.

Thanks for your reply.

I already have it installed - version 2.19.

By the way, I'm running a 64bit environment.

Any other hint?

Thanks,

Paulo

Hi Paulo,

Two things:
  1. You probably missed the very first error: libScotch.so didn't get built, most likely because you didn't install flex and/or bison.
  2. The "-liberty" error is related to some missing libraries in your gcc development tools. In OpenSUSE's YaST, in its software management/installation component, you can choose items by pattern instead of just the package name, and there is a "C/C++ Development" pattern that you can pick and it will install most of the necessary build tools for building OpenFOAM! You can also check this blog for more info on building OpenFOAM for OpenSUSEs: http://albertopassalacqua.com/
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for your message.

I had already read the blog and had done exactly what you say in your message. Unfortunately it didn't work. Flex 2.5.35 is installed on my computer.

I just finished upgrading my Suse from 11.1 to 11.2, and compiled OpenFOAM according to the instructions. For the first time in my life I compiled an application without any error. The guys that prepared it did a great job. Congratulations to them, whoever they are.

I only have a problem now compiling Paraview 3.8.0. It seems that Qt needs to be version 4.6 and I have 4.5.3. I used Yast to install a newer version, but I couldn't find one. Do you know how do I get Qt version 4.6?

Thanks for your time.

Paulo

Hi Paulo,

You can get most versions of Qt from right here: ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qt/source/
If you get the ThirdParty-1.6 package, you'll find in it a script that was used for building Qt 4.3.5, and in the link in my signature you'll find another link to a thread with instructions on how to build ParaView 3.6.1 with Qt 4.3.5, which I believe you can adapt to Qt 4.6.0 and ParaView 3.8.0.

Nonetheless, you could also try to save some time and download the precompiled version available at www.paraview.org, and do the tweak described in the second half of this post: Installation paraFoam - still problem
Well, those are also instructions relative to ParaView 3.6.1, but it should be easy enough to adapt to ParaView 3.8.0

Best regards,
Bruno

Howdy Bruno,

Sorry for the late reply.

I made the changes you mentioned: I used the precompiled version available at www.paraview.org, and did the tweak described in the second half of the post: Installation paraFoam - still problem

I spent most of the time trying to recompile paraview myself, but as I didn't succeed it seems I'm not as good as I thought I was.

I tested Paraview with icoFoam and worked ok.

Next, I'll compile OpenFOAM-1.7.x and just link ThirdParty-1.7.x to 1.7.0.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Best regards,

Paulo

hi...
I too get this error. So I guessed that it may not finding icoFoam. I copied that icoFoam from /home/my/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.0/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/icoFoam my compiled openFoam same version 1.7.0 of and put at
/home/paulo/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.0/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/icoFoam

and then I installed bison, flex, liberty, lz, binutil-dev. and then I excuted ./Allwmake. I was able to compile. Though I could not make the paraview by unknown reason. But I ran many cases in openFoam. I separately installed paraview, which could handle the .vtk files gotten from by executing command foamToVTK.

let me know if it is helps

dinesh

Thanks for your message, Dinesh.

I decided to move on OpenSuse 11.3, and all OpenFOAM 1.7.x compilations ran smoothly.

Regards,

Paulo
