Hi

Thanks every one. I installed OpenFoam successfully. I used GIT Repository. It has got many bugs fixed including the missing patch of LINKEXE.

Thanks a lot.

Hi

It's not ets but it's etc. So it is . $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/etc/bashrc
after adding this line in your $HOME/.bashrc file, type . $HOME/.bashrc in terminal window.

I guess . $HOME/.bashrc sets the variables for all sessions.

Regards

Ok, but I would keep it in your $HOME directory.

No, because OpenFOAM is installed in /usr/local/, so you need to point it there.

Hi

There are certain dependencies that u must have before u try to build it. Here is a yum command, try it out first and make sure that every thing is there, needed for openfoam.

yum install gcc gcc-c++ binutils-devel flex git-core wget cmake qt4-devel python-devel readline-devel bison

I installed in fedora 13 and I used GIT repository as source building has got some unfixed bugs which were giving me errors quite similar to your errors, for me the errors were for a different application. Hence I was not able to properly install using source. So try GIT.

you may be getting error because of not installed binutils thus above command should help you. Another is a LINKEXE patch missing in certain files which is fixed in the GIT repository.

Regards
