Hello everybody,

since I was not satisfied with the result of the automatic ubuntu installation of openfoam, I now tried to manually install it.
But the following Problem occurs: I copied the folders "OpenFOAM-2.0.1" and "ThirdParty-2.0.1" to "/home/sebastian/OpenFOAM/" and when i run Allmake in the OpenFOAM-folder without sudo, I get many many errors. But when i execute "sudo ./Allwmake", I get the message
"/Allwmake: 10: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them."

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Regards,
Sebastian

Greetings Sebastian,
  1. Do not use sudo to build OpenFOAM in your own home folder.
  2. Follow the official instructions to the letter: http://www.openfoam.com/download/source.php
  3. Before running Allwmake, run this:
    Code:
    export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4
    Where 4 is the number of cores in your machine. This way it'll be faster building OpenFOAM.
  4. When you run Allwmake, run it like this instead:
    Code:
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
    This way you'll keep a good log in "make.log" of every step taken by OpenFOAM's build process.
Good luck!
Bruno

Hello Bruno,

thanks alot, I now managed to compile everything. My mistake was that I did not set chmod correctly for the extracted installation files, I found out when I couldn't create the logfile you proposed.

Also the 4 processor hint was very nice

Thanks alot again!

Best regards,
Sebastian
