Hy guys

I'm new in the world of OpenFoam and Linux and I have a Problem with my OF installation. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and I tryed the Source Pack Installation from OF hompage. The problem is, that I have done all the steps until changing the bashrc file. I changed the last line of the file: . $home/peter/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc

Then I tried if it works with icoFoam -help in a new terminal window. But I got an error.

Can anybody help me please?!

Greetings Manuel and welcome to the forum!

So, did you run Allwmake? In other words, if you are installing from source, you'll need to build OpenFOAM. Without doing that, you will not be able to run icoFoam.

Additionally, for Ubuntu, the usual packages necessary for building OpenFOAM can be found here: Building OpenFOAM1.7.0 from source post #4 and onward

Best regards,
Bruno

Ok thank's for your support. Now I've done Allwmake and got another error:

bash: /home/peter/OpenFoam/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc: Permission denied

How did running Allwmake trigger that?

OK, lets go through this step by step:
  • Is "/home/peter" your personal user folder? Or is it someone else's? If it's yours, it will be what is outputted by this command:
    Code:
    echo $HOME
  • Did you edit the file "$HOME/.bashrc" and added this to the end of it:
    Code:
    . $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc
    Notice the space between the "." and the "$".
  • Start a new terminal window. Does any error message appear?
  • Is your Ubuntu 9.04 i386/i486/i686 or x86_64? If you don't know, run this:
    Code:
    uname -a
Best regards,
Bruno

Thank's a lot for your help.

I started ./Allwmake from the wrong directory so that was the problem. Now it works.


thx manu

So new problem

I've done the whole SourcePack installation step by step. Now if I'm trying for example icoFoam he says:

Code:
bash: icoFoam: command not found
please help me before I'm throwing the whole PC out of the window.

Hello

I am trying to make OpenFoam 1.7.1 working on a RHEL 5.3.


I resolved gcc problems. run the ./Allwmake correctly but it stopped. If I run the installtion diagnosis I have almsot the same results than goma. It seems unable to find icoFoam which is right as in the path, it is empty.

Any help would be great,

is that can be linked to the 1.6 that it is already installed?

Thanks,

Nicolas

CentFOAM? Have you tried CentFOAM? It has a support thread here: OpenFOAM-1.7.0 for CentOS/RHEL/SL 5.x 64bit released

Either way, lets move on to the next questions:

Run it again, but like this:
Code:
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
Then post the file "make.log.tar.gz" here.

Mmmm... do you mean to try and use the ThirdParty-1.6 folder instead of ThirdParty-1.7.1?

Bruno

Hello Bruno,

Thank for your help again.

Sorry I was not aware of CentFOAM. I will have a look

Please find in attachment the log file.

My question with the 1.6 was because my error was conflicting installations. It was one of my first diagnosis. But maybe not appropriate ! I will keep the third party 1.7.1.

Hi Nicolas,

Well this is odd... it's the same exact error that Sale got here: make: Target `application' not remade because of errors.

I hope you can install CentFOAM with success, because this error isn't completely unfamiliar, but I can't remember how to fix it

As for using multiple versions of OpenFOAM, see this post: OpenFoam Installation in Redhat Enterprise linux 5 post #17

Best regards,
Bruno

Greetings Thomas and welcome to the forum!

Sadly the Debian version you are using is too old for the OpenFOAM deb packages that were made available by OpenCFD. You will either have to:
  • update your Debian version to a version closer to Ubuntu 10.04;
  • or install OpenFOAM by building from source.
By what I've seen on distrowatch, with Lenny's gcc 4.3.2, you should be able to build OpenFOAM 1.7.1 from source without problems. The packages you'll need are pretty much the same as for Ubuntu: Building OpenFOAM1.7.0 from source post #4 and onward

If you want more performance out of your OpenFOAM build, then consider building gcc 4.4.4/5 or 4.5.1: Automated scripts for building gcc 4.4.x and 4.5.x for using with OpenFOAM 1.7 series

Best regards and good luck!
Bruno

Hi,
i'm completely new in OpenFOAM and just tried to install it. I've followed the instructions on http://www.openfoam.com/download/source.php.

In the installation it only says: make: Target `application' not remade because of errors. you can find the whole log file of the compilation in attached.

The foamInstallationTest gives me:

I saw this error in this post before but I couldn't follow what was the solution on that. I recognized the error when I tried to check the installation with the tutorial... it didn't find blockMesch and says in the log.blockMesh: home/smaike/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/bin/tools/RunFunctions: line 45: blockMesh: command not found

I'm thankfull for every help!
Thanks,
Maike.

Greetings Maike and welcome to the forum!

OK, I believe that you are running OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop seems familiar to me). The log you posted was very helpful and it indicates that your system is missing the library "libiberty.so".

Since you are running OpenSUSE (or so I think), I suggest that you check Alberto's instructions for building OpenFOAM and ParaView in OpenSUSE: Installing OpenFOAM 1.7 on openSUSE 11.3
But I believe the most important item from that tutorial for you is this:
Quote:
Use YaST to install
With that pattern, all of the essential tools for building OpenFOAM will be installed, even those that might not have been reported missing in your previous build!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for your help!

By now I managed to install OpenFOAM and the PV3FoamReader but I'm still not able to install Paraview because I have no QT4 (I mean I thaught I installed it but Paraview is not able to find it.) echo $QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE gives nothing. So there is really nothing in it.
I'm scared to try to install QT4 by hand because there is QT3 on my system and I know that the system needs parts of QT3... So I don't know what to do... (I already crashed my linux at home with installing QT4)

Do you (or someone else) have an Idea?

The error of the ParaView compilation is:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:96 (MESSAGE):
Qt 4.5.0 or greater not found. Please check the QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE
variable.

Thanks for any help,
Maike.

Hi Maike,

Mmm, that's odd, crashing Linux because you installed Qt4...
As for collisions between Qt3 and Qt4, there shouldn't be any, since this has been going on since Qt4 has been released.

I wrote in the previous post about Alberto's blog and there you can also find instructions for building ParaView. But if you don't want to "waste" more time in trying to build it, see this blog post of mine: Using the official pre-built ParaView 3.8.0 version with OpenFOAM...

Best regards and good luck!
