Hi

I am trying to install openfoam 2.1.0 on opensuse 11.4, I followed the installation guide from the openfoam website (http://www.openfoam.org/download/suse.php).
The guide says that I need to use openmpi-1.3.2 instead of the default openmpi-1.2.8, and I got stuck at this step.

When I execute this command:
Code:
sudo zypper in openmpi=1.3.2
it returned:
Code:
Retrieving repository 'PK_TMP_DIR' metadata [done]
Building repository 'science' cache [done]
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'openmpi=1.3.2' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
No provider of 'openmpi = 1.3.2' found.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.
Does anybody know how to resolve this installation problem..?

Thanks

Hi Raphael and welcome to the forum!

Indeed, Open-MPI 1.3.2 seems to have been removed from the science repository.

Try these steps instead:
Code:
sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/libraries:/c_c++/openSUSE_11.4/ devel:libraries:c_c++
sudo zypper in openmpi=1.4.5
Then follow the remaining instructions taking into account the change from 1.3.2 to 1.4.5.

edit: I've reported this on the bug tracker: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=501

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

I followed your suggestion, and seems that everything works well now!
I could run the first example case of incompressible laminar flow in a cavity without any problem.
So problem solved! Thank you very much!

Best Regards,
Raphael

Hi Raphael,

You're welcome! But be careful, because things might not work as well when you need to run applications in parallel. Like I wrote on the bug report I mentioned before, I haven't fully tested this

Good luck!
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

As for now I'm still using the serial mode, I'll update if I use the parallel mode.

Thanks!
