Hi everyone
It seems that by using makeParaview tool in the ThirdParty package I can build the paraview 3.8.0 within the ThirdPary package. but with the same machine I can not build the paraview 3.8.0 manual by using ccmake to configure and generate. It error message in ccmake is :
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:88 (MESSAGE):
Qt 4.5.0 or greater not found. Please check the QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE
variable.



CMake Error at VTK/CMakeLists.txt:310 (MESSAGE):
Qt 4.5.0 or greater not found. Please check the QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE
variable.



Qt QTGUI library not found.

Qt QTSQL library not found.

Qt QTCORE library not found.

Qt QTGUI library not found.

Qt QTSQL library not found.

that`s Why?

another quiestion is that if anybody have succeed in building OSMesa in RHEL 4? when i built that , I got all share lib by libGL.so and glx can`t build successful with error message:


../../../bin/mklib -o GL -linker 'gcc' \

(....)

that`s Why?
You need to install Qt 4.5 or Qt 4.6, including Qt's development tools. And since you seem to be using RHEL 4, you probably better build Qt from source. You can check my signature link at the end of this post for more possible solutions for you ParaView+Qt problems.

As for OSMesa+RHEL4, I'm all out of ideas, since I've rarely managed to build it successfully in Ubuntu and Windows, and I have no experience with RHEL

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi

Thanks for you reply. I have rebuilt the Qt with -no-openssl and then resolve the first problem.

But for the last , I still can`t not make the osmesa correctly in redhat, but fine in Opensuse, osmesa is very usefull of off screen rendering. it is needed to built paraview with tool pvbatch.

Hi Wayne,

I have no experience with Red Hat itself, but in Fedora and Scientific Linux (both Red Hat based) yum finds libosmesa:

Code:
[root@pc7368 wierink_g]# yum search libosmesa
Loaded plugins: kernel-module
sl5base                   100% |=========================| 1.1 kB    00:00

mesa-libOSMesa-devel.x86_64 : Mesa offscreen rendering development package
[root@pc7368 wierink_g]#
Have you searched with yum for libosmesa and tried to install it? I guess it would be good to install libosmesa and libosmesa-devel.

Hi Foamers,
I'm trying to install OF 1.7.x with Paraview 3.8.0 on a Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP 1, that has as default QT 4.4.
I have problems as there aren't packages of QT 4.5.x or higher for this Distro (damned commercial distros!!!), and I don't know how to compile and install a correct version of QT in my system to be used by OF and Paraview only.
Could anyone give me some help?
Thanks, Ivan

Hi Ivan,

Can you compile QT from source?

Code:
wget ftp://ftp.trolltech.no/qt/source/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.5.3.tar.gz

Hi gwierink,
I've already downloaded a QT 4.6.3 source pack, but I've not allready compiled it. The question is, how can I use this version without overriding the system version and how can I tell OF to use this version and not the system one?
Thanks,
Ivan

Hi Ivan,

Have a look at this page, in particular the section below:
Quote:
Now we also have to install Paraview 3.8.0 and the PV3FoamReader module, which requires qt to be installed: cd $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.x
mkdir qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3
mkdir linuxSrc; cd linuxSrc
wget http://get.qt.nokia.com/qt/source/qt...c-4.6.3.tar.gz
tar xzf qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3.tar.gz
cd qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3
./configure -prefix $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.x/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3 -opensource -stl 2>&1 | tee log_configure
(-stl might be needed for the GUI. It SHOULD have been activated by default, but there is a problem)
#(choose OpenSource editon and accept conditions)
make 2>&1 | tee log_make #Check this file for error messages! This takes several hours!
make install 2>&1 | tee log_make_install #Check this file for error messages!
Add the following to the end of your $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.x/etc/apps/paraview3/bashrc file:
export PATH=$WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
