Dear All
 
I am facing the problem with the installation of OpenFOAM 1.7.1. I have gone up to the step of extracting the file but I am unable to Setting environment variables.
I have gone through the procedure but i am getting the following error.

Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variable are not consistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them

Will anybody explain the procedure of Setting environment variables once to me(Step by Step) since i am not getting it.HELP ME PLEASE I AM TRYING FOR IT FROM A WEEK.

Hi,

what linux distribution do you have?

What happens if you type

Code:

cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR

Toni

Greetings to all! And kurne, welcome to the forum :)

In addition to Toni's question, I've got a few more questions:
  • What Linux distribution are you using? And is it 32 or 64bit?
  • In what folder did you install OpenFOAM? Was it "$HOME/OpenFOAM"? Does "$HOME/OpenFOAM" have the folders OpenFOAM-1.7.1 and ThirdParty-1.7.1?
  • What does it look like in the end of the file "$HOME/.bashrc"? I'm asking you this, because I don't if you've already tried to install any other version of OpenFOAM, and/or if the file "$HOME/.bashrc" is actually working well or not.
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Kurne,

In addition to the above, I think it is not a good idea to install OpenFOAM as root. It would be better to login as your own user.
Also, are you unpacking "standard packages" from OpenCFD or compiling?

Hi Kurne,

my guess is you are using Ubuntu 10.04.
For this version a step-by-step installation guide exists:

If you have problems with it let us know at which point you get stuck.

Toni

Greetings Kurne,

OK, installing from source in Ubuntu, before you start compiling, you need to install the packages listed on this post: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post268828

After that, it should be as simple as following the instructions in http://www.openfoam.com/download/source.php

Best regards,
Bruno
