What error is this?
 
I tried to blockMesh a geometry based om the motorcycle_tut.
Strange message came. ACtually the same error came when I tried to run foamToVTK on another case. Seems to be related to the C reader???

Suggestions?

you have to go into the top location of your case

Code:

cd ~/OpenFOAM/ruben-1.6.x/run/torus
and then run
