akonduri is on a distinguished road

I get the following error while installation of OpenFOAM 1.7. The OS is RedHat.

Greetings Aditya,

Knowing which version of RedHat would also help...
Also, what is the version of gcc you are using? Run this:
gcc -v
If it's a version lower than 4.3.1, then that's the problem: you will need to get a newer gcc version.

As for the error:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lOpenFOAM
indicates that libOpenFOAM wasn't even built, so the problem is closer to the beggining of the run. Run Allwmake like this:
./Alwmake > make.log 2>&1
When it's done, pack the make.log file and post it here.

Additionally, AFAIK, there is a package for CentOS named centfoam that might help you install OpenFOAM in RedHat: CentFOAM - OpenFOAM for CentOS.x86_64

Best regards,
