Hey fellows, need some tiny thing here :

I followed instructions on http://www.openfoam.com/download/suse.php
apparently downloading OpenFOAM for SuSE 11.3 x86_64bit. But happened to have some error which I can't solve:

by icoFoam -help gives out error: icoFoam: error while loading shared libraries: libscotch-5.1.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


sudo rpm -q libscotch gives: package not installed

sudo rpm -q libscotch-dev gives: libscotch-dev-5.1.6.dfsg-4.x86_64
(installed)



but I repeat instruction 4. for installing the 64bit of the libscotch library version gives: Preparing packages for installation...
package libscotch-5.1-5.1.6.dfsg-4.x86_64 is already installed


why does this error happened? looking foward for the solution of this problem!

thanks!

Greetings lil_jam and welcome to the forum!

Try this:
Code:
rpm -q libscotch-5.1
I've just tested to install this in openSUSE 11.3 and all went OK, although there is a step missing on the official page:
Code:
sudo zypper in libqt4 libQtWebKit4
Only afterwards will you be able to install the ParaView rpm.

Best regards,
Bruno

thank you Bruno for the speedy answer. I've repeated the step 4 and tried again downloading these 4 stuffs like below. All showed 'already installed' beside the 1st one.

sudo rpm -i --badreloc --relocate /usr/lib=/usr/lib64 \
http://www.openfoam.com/download/sus...g-4.x86_64.rpm

sudo rpm -i --badreloc --relocate /usr/lib=/usr/lib64 \
http://www.openfoam.com/download/sus...g-4.x86_64.rpm

sudo rpm -i http://www.openfoam.com/download/sus...0-2.x86_64.rpm


sudo rpm -i --nodeps http://www.openfoam.com/download/sus...0-2.x86_64.rpm

As when I downloaded the 1st line, it appeared this :

rpm: relocations must begin with a /


I also tried opening icoFoam -help on 2nd terminal, and showed this error :

icoFoam: error while loading shared libraries: libscotch-5.1.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

that was like previously, where when I checked it again for libscotch ie line 1.


best regards

Hi lil_jam,

OK, try this:
Code:
sudo -s

rpm -i --badreloc --relocate /usr/lib=/usr/lib64 http://www.openfoam.com/download/suse/11.3/x86_64/libscotch-5.1-5.1.6.dfsg-4.x86_64.rpm       

#then finally exit root mode
exit
This way it's executed directly in root mode and there isn't any "\" that could damage the command.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno!

best regards

Hi lil_jam,

Mmm, then the only option that comes to mind is to:
  1. Launch yast2 and go to the "Software Management" option.
  2. Update/refresh the repositories.
  3. Request it to re-install libscotch, until it's properly installed.
  4. Then run the other instructions once again.
Hopefully this should solve the problem. I didn't give more detailed instructions because right now I don't have an openSUSE box at arms length

Best regards and good luck!
Bruno
