Installation OpenFOAM-1.6-ext
 
Hello,

I tried to install OpenFOAM-1.6-ext on SuSE SLES 11, but there were some problems with the environment variables e. g. the variable of the location of the third party software. Before I tried to installe OpenFOAM-1.6-ext I installed OpenFoam-1.7.x. After downloading OpenFoam-1.6-ext and adding and sourcing the necessary line in the .bashrc, I run the foamInstallationTest script and got the following output:

Some variables have still the path of the OpenFoam-1.7.x installation and some were updated and have now the right path of the OpenFOAM-1.6-ext installation. E.g. the WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR variable has the wrong value and therefore I can't execute ./Allwmake correctly.
Does anyone know, what I did wrong and how to correct it?

Thanks
Jennifer

You have to check your .bashrc file: is there the line

. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc

After this close the console and open a new one, it should work!

OFU January 5, 2011 08:51

Hello Giovanni,

Yes, the line
. /home/ofu/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc

is in the .bashrc file and when I open a new console and run foamInstallationTest I get the output I described.
And its curios that some variables are right and other wrong.
Therefore the problem must be somewhere else, but where?

karamiag January 5, 2011 09:03

Is the line

. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.x/etc/bashrc

commented or absent in your .bashrc file?

OFU January 5, 2011 09:08

These are the entries in the .bashrc file which correspond to OpenFoam. All entries are commented out except the entry for OpenFoam-1.6-ext.



#*********** OpenFOAM ************************************

#*** Version 1.5
#. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/bashrc

Greetings to all!

Jennifer, I suggest that you change the lines you posted from "~/.bashrc", to something like this:
Code:

#*********** OpenFOAM ************************************

#*** Version 1.5
alias of15='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/bashrc'

#*** Version 1.6
alias of16='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc'

#*** Version 1.6-ext
alias of16ext='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc'

#*** Version 1.7.x
alias of17x='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.x/etc/bashrc'

Then start a new console/terminal. Run this to check if there are any remnants of OpenFOAM environment variables:
Code:

export | grep -i "foam"
If anything is outputted from this command (as long it's not an error message), then there is still some rogue line lying around in "~/.bashrc"!

When all is fixed and working, then whenever you start a new console or terminal, you can choose which OpenFOAM version you want, by running of17x or of16ext and so on. Keep in mind that you can only use each alias command in a new console/terminal, otherwise you will get the crazy environment like the one you are getting right now!

Best regards,
Bruno

Dear Sir,

can You kindly tell me where I can get Openfoam 1.6-ext and the other required files?
Moreover, can You kindly tell me (briefly) How can i successfully install the package on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS platform?


Thank You in advance.

Greetings Claudio,

You didn't need to ask this more than in one thread! ;) If you did feel that need, then it's very likely you're not trying hard enough to look for the answer ;)

OK, the easy peasy installation instructions: OpenFOAM-dev-1.5 or OpenFOAM-1.6-ext under Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS

The BIY instructions: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...e-1-6-ext.html - only read the first post. ;)

Best regards,
Bruno

Dear Bruno,

I must confess You that I have already try with the instructions given at : OpenFOAM-dev-1.5 or OpenFOAM-1.6-ext under Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS ; however this package does not contain tutorials and other solvers I need.
Moreover, I downloaded the package from SourceForge server. It semmes to be complete. I compiled it but 2 errors occurs at the end of the compilation ( It takes me 2 hours). The messages regard some missing package (lincompressibleRasmodel and so on).


Best,

Claudio

boger February 12, 2011 09:26

What are the tutorials? What are the solvers? What are the error messages?

claco February 14, 2011 14:36

Dear All,


I installed version 1.6 ext, and the enclosed log file is the result of the foamInstallationTest.

Can You kindly help me please?

I followed step-by-step the instructions contained in the README file.

This is a bogus warning... which I believe has already been fixed in 1.7.x, but the fix hasn't reached 1.6-ext yet. In other words, this is not a critical error and it will not affect OpenFOAM's build process.

For us to get a better understanding of what went wrong with your build process, please run Allwmake again like this:
Code:

./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log

Then attach the file "make.log.tar.gz" to your next post.

Best regards,
Bruno
