motorbike tutorial error in snappy hex
 
I tried to run the tutorial using allrun.
i get the following error:

Running snappyHexMesh on /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/tutorials/incompressible/simpleFoam/motorBike
/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/bin/tools/RunFunctions: line 37: 5698 Killed $APP_RUN $* > log.$APP_NAME 2>&1

I attempted the STL file cleanup from here and replaced the file with the new stl file, still getting the error

Please help. thank you!

Greetings Mihai,

You've skipped the very first step from the tutorials guide: http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/tutorials.php
Quote:

Code:

mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN
cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS $FOAM_RUN


You should work on a copy of the tutorials, not work directly on the original tutorials folder ;)

Best regards,
Bruno

oops thanks, I forgot about that step :)

ok, I copied to $FOAM_RUN, same error. Even tried a different stl file.
I'm using the OpenFOAM packaged with GeekoCFD

Hi Mihai,

Mmm... OK, try getting the latest one from the snapshot link at the top left on this page: http://repo.or.cz/w/OpenFOAM-2.0.x.g...Foam/motorBike

By the way, does the file "log.snappyHexMesh" get created? If so, what's the error message it shows inside it?

If this also fails, perhaps you've got to complain to Alberto ;)
Wow, GeckoCFD 3.0 is now available as well: http://albertopassalacqua.com/?p=1234

Best regards,
Bruno

I did a fresh OF install on Ubuntu and it works now.
Thanks
