OK, but then I dont understand from where you managed to run
the configure script when you got the error in the first place.

I just checked your error message and saw that its located in

/home/user/build/gcc-4.4.4/build

which makes me wonder if your foam intallation is located under your home-catalog,
because if it isnt the configure script needs to be adjusted accordingly.

Niklas,
Yes the gcc.4.4.4 is located as you saw also confirmed below. This became so after following the recipe from Niels. The OpenFOAM is located in:
[user@OpenFOAM OpenFOAM]$ ls
OpenFOAM-1.6 OpenFOAM-1.7.0.gtgz.1 ThirdParty-1.7.0 user-1.6
OpenFOAM-1.6.x OpenFOAM-1.7.x ThirdParty-1.7.0.gtgz
OpenFOAM-1.7.0 ThirdParty-1.6 ThirdParty-1.7.0.gtgz.1
OpenFOAM-1.7.0.gtgz ThirdParty-1.6.x ThirdParty-1.7.x
[user@OpenFOAM OpenFOAM]$ pwd
/home/user/OpenFOAM

Hi

adding these lines to your $HOME/.bashrc file should make it possible to compile gcc-4.4.4

Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/gmp-5.0.1/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

export  LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/mpfr-2.4.2/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Please make sure these paths exists by doing

Code:
ls -l $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/gmp-5.0.1/lib
ls -l $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/mpfr-2.4.2/lib
If these directories do exists go into the $HOME/build/gcc-4.4.4/build folder and issue

Code:
. $HOME/.bashrc
make -j2
This worked for me in 64bit getting the same error you posted.

Niels,
I tried your new scheme and it did not give any errors. I take that I should execute 'make install ' and follow your instructions from before.

When I came to OpenFOAM OpenFOAM-1.7.0] and execute ./Allwmake I got these errors:
+ wmake libso OpenFOAM

Any guide for what went wrong?

Hi

Did you remember to run Allwmake in the Thirdparty folder first?

What is the output of

Code:
OF17
which gcc
This should list gcc as located in $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/gcc-4.4.4/bin/gcc

If this is the case I have no idea what should be going on.

Niels,
Yes, I did the procedure as you mention.
When I issue the command
which gcc I get
/usr/bin/gcc

This is not what you would expect? Any clue what is wrong?

Hi is there anything in the folder

$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/platforms/linux/gcc-4.4.4

if not then the make install step did not install gcc-4.4.4 the right place.

as a side note open the openFOAM/etc/settings and check that the compiler version is as below

Code:
# Select compiler installation
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | system
: ${compilerInstall:=OpenFOAM}
I'm guessing this is set to system and it will fail.

After changing run

Code:
OF17
which gcc
again and check the output

Niels,

That seemed to do the trick!

I changed the settings.sh file to (in red):

# compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | system
: ${compilerInstall:=OpenFOAM}
case "${compilerInstall:-OpenFOAM}" in
OpenFOAM)
case "$WM_COMPILER" in
Gcc)
# gcc_version=gcc-4.4.3
gcc_version=gcc-4.4.4

Now it compiles and probably will generate OF1.7.0

Niels,

It compiled and passed the cavity check! Thank you very much for your help!
My next task will be to tray to install paraFoam.

Bjorn

PS! There were some warnings during the compilation (unused variables). Is this something that you also found? Will it be a problem?

Hi,

Following the successfull installation of OF1.7.0 on my 32 bit CentOS linux maschine I have now moved over to install paraFoam. The following error comes at the very end after the command ./makeParaView:
________________________________________

Installation complete for paraview-3.8.0
Set environment variables:

Done

Hi everyone
I tried to compile OF17, but got problems, then I saw this thread. I want to install it on a RHEL 5.0 64bit.
I don't have access to root, so I couldn't run the Yum command in post #4.
Then I went through gcc part, and got the same error as post #5 and #6.
Right now I have gcc 4.3.3 under OpenFoam 1.6 third parties, and my OF16 works perfectly.
But when I want to make gcc 4.4.4 I get error.
under OF17 environment, My Gcc is
/usr/bin/gcc
and under 1.6 its
~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux64/bin/gcc

Guys, I have a question:
I have a cluster with 64bit RHEL 5.0, and previously I have installed OpenFoam 1.6 on it.
Can I replace all the source code for 1.7 with all the source code for 1.6 and wmake it?
does this work?

Hi

@ SAHM

you need to edit the OpenFOAM settings.sh file to reflect where gcc is installed lige Bjorn did. With the compilation of GCC try and export the library path for mpfr and gmp in your .bashrc file like so.

Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/pathToGmp/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/pathToMpfr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Source the .bashrc file

Code:
. $HOME/.bashrc
and try and compile gcc again.

Quote:

# compilerInstall = OpenFOAM | system
: ${compilerInstall:=OpenFOAM}
case "${compilerInstall:-OpenFOAM}" in
OpenFOAM)
case "$WM_COMPILER" in
Gcc)
# gcc_version=gcc-4.4.3
gcc_version=gcc-4.4.4

Now it compiles and probably will generate OF1.7.0

@ Ti_Pago_Da_Bere

I do not think that is possible. you can use the ThirdParty stuff from my binary release and then get the sources for OF and then do wmake. If you do it this way remember to change the settings.sh file like above.

Otherwise download both my packages and you are ready to run.

1.6 and 1.7 will live happily alongside each other on the same system and a good way to keep them seperate is to use aliases for them in your $HOME/.bashrc file like so.

Code:
alias OF16=". $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/etc/bashrc"
alias OF17=". $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7/etc/bashrc"
Then if you run OF16 from terminal you will use OF 1.6 and if you type OF17 you will switch to OF 1.7.

Dear All,
is it possible to install the here cited version of CentFOAM on RHEL 4.1.2-46 (I do not know what SL 5.x stands for) on a cluster to which I do not have the root rights? I know the installation requires the "yum" command, which needs root rights that I do not have... Thanks!

Hi

No that will not be possible. It is possible to get OF working on RHEL 4.x releases it will although take some time and will be somewhat more difficult if you cant install packages as root.

SL-5.x is Scientific Linux 5.x where x can be 0,1,2,3,4 or 5.

Best

Hi Linnemann,
thanks for the quick reply. More difficult but thankfully not impossible. According to other threads (OpenFoam Installation in Redhat Enterprise linux 5) it is possible to install gcc4.3.3 from OF1.6ThridParty and then use OF1.7.1 ... do you agree with that?
Thanks, Andreas

Hi

If only you were that lucky, I've installed OF-1.5 on a RHEL 4 release and it was not the most trivial task :-) and 1.6 and 1.7 are most likely not easier.

There are some libraries in rhel 4 that are to old for gcc-4.3.x so you need to compile new ones of those and a whole lot of other stuff I cant remember.

But again Google is your friend
http://cheminsilico.blogspot.com/200...-on-rhel4.html

From here on you are on your own I'm afraid, unless some other member has a cluster/workstation with rhel/centos 4 on it.
