Problem on installing Openfoam on 64bit sgi station
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there
I am trying to install open foam2.0.1 on 64 bit SGI workstation

My first bug i had was
Makefile:54 /../../............./Openfoam-2.0.1/wmake/rules/linuxIA64I64/general: Mo such file or directory
Makefile:55 /../../............./Openfoam-2.0.1/wmake/rules/linuxIA64I64/c++: Mo such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target

So i decide to create the linuxIA64I64/ directory and put inside linuxIA64Gcc directory.

this permit me to go further but not to complete the installation

and now i got :

make[1]: Leaving directory `/lun/home/gregngreg51/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.1/applications/solvers/stressAnalysis'
make: Target `application' not remade because of errors.

here is the make.log of the installation

if somebody face this problem please help me!

Greetings gregjunqua,

By what I can see, the gcc version you are trying to use is Gcc 3.3.3, based on a path shown in the attached file:

I think the minimum acceptable version is Gcc 4.3.3. You have a few options:
  • Contact your system's administrator and ask for at least Gcc 4.3.3, although Gcc 4.5.x or 4.6.x (where x>=0) would give you better OpenFOAM binaries.
  • Try building one of these gcc versions yourself! Instructions are in the "" or "README.html" files in the "ThirdParty-2.0.1" folder.
  • Contact your SGI provider or use the contact form at for dedicated support for your platform, since they now provide dedicated support for SGI machines!
Best regards,

And tell me that i should do with Icc

But i don't know how to do that. i found some example but it for old OpenFOAM version like 1.7.1 ....

Hi gregjunqua,

Which Icc version do you have installed?

icc -v
I believe that OpenFOAM 2.0 currently only supports Icc 12.x, but I could be wrong.

To start the environment with the right settings for using Icc, instead of just using in your "~/.bashrc":

source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.1/etc/bashrc
Simply add the respective option for Icc:

source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.1/etc/bashrc WM_COMPILER=Icc
You can check what other options are there inside OpenFOAM's bashrc file!

If that doesn't work, there is always the file "" in the folder "ThirdParty-2.0.1" that has some instructions to build Gcc 4.4 or 4.5!

Best regards and good luck!
