Paraview compilation with ./makeParaView returns me a bunch of errors:

Finally I gave up compiling the paraview and installed the precompiled version. It works.

I am getting this same error while building paraview on RHEL5 with OpenFoam 1.7.1.
I have QT 4.6.2 in my PATH & LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The odd thing is that the make does not abort- it will build paraview, which will run- but if it's called via paraFoam,
it dies immediately, sqawking about VTK errrors.

Did you also have the "Please check the QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE variable" error? If so, have you set it? I actually don't know where you should set it; I guess in the cmake file or even in your bashrc ...

Gijs-

After some consideration, I set it in the makeParaView script, and that seems to
work.

On a similar note, I noticed that Paraview's default settings do not build paraview with MPI. If I turn that on, there are a bunch of MPI variables that Paraview expects as well.
The Paraview build instructions set these with some cmake gui tool I've never heard of-
I guess I'll try setting these in the MakeParaview file, too- or just leave it without MPI did get the thing working

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Good to hear you got it working!

Do you mean the cmake gui or CL interface? I guess you can set the MPI related paths there (MPI_INCLUDE_PATH, MPI_LIBRARY etc) to the openmpi paths in ThirdParty (?) ...

Javier-

I set the QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE to point to my qmake executable in the
makeParaView file that's in the top directory of the third party tar, then ran it.
If it works you should see it find your QT executable when you run makeParaView

Dear Mark,

Sorry but really i can't find QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE and makeparaview. I found -qmake in the makeparaview executable. I don't know is i am right but you try to say that modified the
QMAKE_PATH="~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.x/paraview-3.8.0/Qt"

Sometime like that?

Please help me!!!!!!

Respectfully
Javier

Hi Javier,

Shouldn't the QMAKE_PATH point to the path where the actual qmake executable lives? Can you find that out by
Code:
which qmake
and plug that into the QMAKE_PATH variable? I'm sorry, I haven't used paraFoam for ages, usually use VTK (for Lagrangian particles). Besides, ParaView-3.8.x+ also works with OpenFOAM files (as Anton Kidess mentioned in some other post, forgot which one). Just do
Code:
touch caseName.foam
where caseName is the name of your case, and open the .foam file with paraview.

Greetings to all!

Here are the solutions that I've been using for a while, for some of your questions:
  • For building ParaView with your custom Qt, run:
    Code:
    ./makeParaView -qmake $QT_PLATFORM_PATH/bin/qmake
    Where QT_PLATFORM_PATH has the path to where you installed your custom Qt. If you don't know where it's installed, but you know it should be in your ThirdParty folder, then run this:
    Code:
    find $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/ -name qmake
    This should give you the complete path to where qmake is installed.
  • For building ParaView with MPI, it should work by simply running with the "-mpi" option:
    Code:
    ./makeParaView -mpi
  • For doing both, I assume you figure out how to do both in one go, but just in case, here it is:
    Code:
    ./makeParaView -mpi -qmake $QT_PLATFORM_PATH/bin/qmake
    By the way, if you want Python to be added in the mix, run with the additional option "-python"... although you might want to confirm which version of Python it expects to find, by editing the makeParaView script and update the Python related line if necessary.
  • Like Gijsbert said, as of ParaView 3.8.0 the internal reader for OpenFOAM works as intended. If after you follow Gijsbert's instructions you find out that it works very well, then you can follow these instructions:

    Now open the file "$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.0/bin/paraFoam" in your favorite simple text editor and replace every entry ".OpenFOAM" with ".foam". Now save and close the file.
    (Mmmm.. a bit outdated, I gotta update those instructions...)
Best regards,
Bruno
