Hi everyone,
during the installation of OF 2.0.1 I face the same error fivos met some times ago:
Quote:
Originally Posted by fivos View Post

/home/fivos/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/src/finiteVolume/lnInclude/fvMatrixSolve.C:152: error: no matching function for call to 'max(Foam::lduMatrix::solverPerformance&, Foam::lduMatrix::solverPerformance&)'

Then more errors emerge, but I believe the root is the error I already mentioned. Has anyone else encountered this error? Any ideas?
how can this be solved? Fivos concluded that it was not a gcc problem, thus what should I do?
Please note the following:
  • configure complains, see here, but this should be not a problem;
  • I have ggc 4.3.2 installed on a Gnome Debian;
  • flex is 2.5.35.
anyone can help? thank you in advance!

EDIT: this error can be solved using gcc-4.5.1, see post #66

One step more (and one question more...)
I wanted to update my gcc, just in the case that this solve my problem. I followed steps described by Bernard here, from 1 to 5, thus now I should have the following installed on my workstation:
  • gmpPACKAGE=gmp-5.0.2 #changed from 5.0.1
  • mpfrPACKAGE=mpfr-2.4.2
  • mpcPACKAGE=mpc-0.8.1
  • gccPACKAGE=gcc-4.5.1
  • cmakePACKAGE=cmake-2.8.3
Indeed:
Code:
tail makeGcc.log --> Built: gcc-4.5.1
However:
Code:
gcc --version --> gcc (Debian 4.3.2-1.1) 4.3.2.
It seems like nothing has changed...

Any clue of what is happening here?

Hey Maddalena,
try to insert the line

HTML Code:
alias of20x-linux64='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/bashrc foamCompiler=ThirdParty WM_COMPILER=Gcc45'
to your .bashrc and source it.
In my case it worked.
It is also described in Bruno's post, here

Hey,
yes I use this solver.
Does it have something to do with the installation of OpenFOAM-2.0.0?

In my case it worked.
Indeed it was something connected with gcc: my foamCompiler and WM_COMPILER were not defined in $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.1/etc/bashrc and $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.1/etc/config/settings.sh accordingly. therefore, ./Allwmake was looking for gcc on the standard Debian folder, in place of $HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.0.1/platforms/linux64/gcc-4.5.1/bin/gcc.
I fixed that, and now I have a brand new OpenFOAM 2.0.1 version to test! Problem reported here is fixed in this way.

Thank you for your interest.

so tel me how can i write the data of stream function with this solver
actally StreamFunction command work for another solver like icoFoam SimpleFoam but in buoyantB...SimpleFoam it cant work it gave me error so what can i do?

hey can anybody solve my problem?

Hey,

I do not know the function "streamFunction" but I know the tutorial case "hotRoom" and in my opinion this test case is not usable.
It converges very bad as the mesh is much too coarse.
When I run "streamFunction" in the test case "hotRoom" i get the same error as you get.
When I run it in another test case, it is fine.

I assume the reason for streamFunction not working is the bad convergence behaviour of the test case.

That is all that I can say.

jignesh,
this is not the right thread where to post your questions! This has nothing to do with OpenFoam installation! Please, open your own thread.

hey all,

i 've a problem compiling the third party (paraview).
I did everything correctly listed in the openfoam.com introduction how to install the git respository.

OF is compiled with no serious errors. After that i started compiling paraview

Code:
./makeParaView
After a while i get an error:

    Set environment variables:

        export PATH=$ParaView_DIR/bin:$PATH
        export PV_PLUGIN_PATH=$FOAM_LIBBIN/paraview-3.12
    ---

Done
After the first time, i set the enviroment variables listed in the code and tried it again. unfortunately with the same error.

Did i forget to install a tool / lib or something like that?

Is it possible that this problem is caused by my graphiccard?
/usr/lib/libGL.so
I 'd some problems to install the driver. :/
Its a nvidia GTX 560 but there are no drivers coming from ubuntu, so i downloaded the driver from nivida.com and installed it. but i remember that there was a message with an script error.

Greetings Tobi,

Yes, it's possible that the problem is related to a bad installation of the graphics card drivers. Nonetheless, it might not be or just be the tip of the iceberg!

So, let's go through the check list:
  1. Are you able to see those neat animations and transparencies that Ubuntu has? You know, the ones that need a 3D accelerated graphics card.
  2. Check if the file "/usr/lib64/libGL.so" exists. Sometimes things get placed in the right place, but the wrong place is where things usually are and where they are searched for
  3. Which OpenFOAM and Ubuntu versions are you using? This is just to try and replicate the issue you are getting.
  4. Did you install all of the packages indicated on the page where you followed the installation instructions? Because ParaView needs a few more packages that OpenFOAM doesn't need.
Best regards,
Bruno

Hey,

i am useing Ubuntu 10.04 and want to work with OpenFOAM 2.1.x.
After a bad crash in Linux I reinstalled Ubuntu yesterday. The first problem is, that there are no graphics driver supported with my card. So i decided to download the driver from nvidia.com and installed it in runlvl 3 like the introductions file says.


I just installed the packages for OpenFOAM. Which other packs do i need for paraview?

I 'll have a look at the files you listed and report it later.

Thx
Tobi

Ah ha! And if you are using Ubuntu 10.04, then you need this post: paraview compilation error paraview-3.12.0 - post #9

Hi Bruno,

i looked for the libGL.so file, and it exists but i think with errors. If i click on it there is coming a error message that the aim -- "»mesa/libGL.so«" -- does not exist.

I can make my terminal transparent and can see everything very good. Did you mean sth. like that?

The line you posted with the packs are on my computer.
I tried to compile paraview with the Post #9 without success :/

I think that the problem is caused by my graphics card. but i dont know how i can fix it. I 'll try to install the drivers again and hope that the error is fixed then.

I add the makePV. error file.

Hey Bruno,

i refreshed my graphics driver and now it seems that paraview could be compiled
At least i added the nvidia driver installation log - there are some errors too.

But i think my problem is solved, for the moment.

I'm glad you've got it working! I've quickly seen the attached log file and in spite of error it shows, it looks like everything else is working... so, I guess that if it looks like it is working, then it's because it is working at least until it stops working...

Hello everyone!

I start saying that I'm new of this forum, and I'm also new of Linux.

I am trying to install OF 2.0.1 since at least 3 days but without success.
I'm using Debian Squeeze. I installed the packages required for Ubunto listed in http://www.openfoam.org/download/source.php

After first problems (apparently solved in the thread Allwmake path error
where I posted also the output of foamInstallationTest), now it seems I'm in the same (or similar) situation of Jan in the 1st post of this thread. Only that I'm not able to find where is/are the error/s.

I am attaching the output of ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1

Thank you!

Claudio

Greetings Claudio,

I saw your posts earlier today, but only now did I get around to look into this and reply.

The first error usually is the one that tells the whole story In your case, it's this chunk of output:
Code:
wmake libso mpi
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/openmpi/lib/libmpi.so when searching for -lmpi
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/openmpi/lib/libmpi.a when searching for -lmpi
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.4.5/../../../libmpi.so when searching for -lmpi
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libmpi.so when searching for -lmpi
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmpi
Apparently it looks like you are trying to use the system's MPI, but you also seem have a double architecture working on your machine, namely both i486 and x86_64 as it seems.
The solution should be for you to install the correct MPI for x86_64.
The other possibility is to switch to compiling the 32bit version of OpenFOAM.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
thanks for your answer!

I think that you understood what is my problem, but sincerely I didn't. Or better: what exactly I have to do to install OF? or better again: which is this "correct MPI for x86_64" ??
And also for the second alternative, how I can compile the 32bit version of OpenFOAM? Because on the website I found only one version (I think...) to download!

Thank you!

Best regards,
Claudio
