Hi, All,
I'm just new to the OpenFOAM. I want to use OpenFOAM on the cluster of our institute. I'm also not so familiar with Linux, I just follow the official website procedure. As I do installation check, I got following message:

done.



There seems two errors, one is for lower gcc compiler, what about the other one? Could anyone give me any hint?
Because I use the cluster from institute, the only way to update the gcc is to ask the administrator to do it, right?
I found many no(s) from this checking results, are they important? I really don't know how to deal with it.

Any suggestion will be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,
Max

Hi Max,

Did you compile OpenFOAM or use the binaries?

Quote:
Supplied version: 4.1.2
Minimum required: 4.3.1
gcc 4.1.2 /usr/lib64/ccache/bin/gcc
Do you have a possibility to use or install a newer version of gcc? (perhaps you know, but do you perhaps need to load a gcc module on your cluster?)

I have same error. But I have gcc44 installed. What I have to change in OpenFoam-1.7.1/etc/bashrc ?

$ gcc -v
gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-52)
$ gcc44 -v
gcc version 4.4.6 20110731 (Red Hat 4.4.6-3) (GCC)

I have tryed to change WM_COMPILER directive in OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc

Quote:
: ${WM_COMPILER:=Gcc44}; export WM_COMPILER

unset WM_COMPILER_ARCH WM_COMPILER_LIB_ARCH
this not helped me.

Also I have OpenFOAM-2.1.1. It works. bashrc in 1.7.1 and 2.1.1 wrote in a bit differ style, but maybe I can use some parts of 2.1.1's bashrc for editing 1.7.1's bashrc?

And, yes, I want 1.7.1 for gdbOF (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Contrib_gdbOF), which works only on 1.7.1.
