Trouble with Multisolver installation...
Hey....i tried installing multisolver on OpenFOAM 1.7, but when try running
cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/src/multiSolver
wmake libso

I get the message...
/bin/sh: cannot create linux64GccDPOpt/options: Permission denied
make: *** [linux64GccDPOpt/options] Error 2
/opt/openfoam170/wmake/MakefileFiles:39: linux64GccDPOpt/options: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `linux64GccDPOpt/options'. Stop.
wmake error: file 'Make/linux64GccDPOpt/objectFiles' could not be created

Can u help me with this, I think it is due to a permission issue, but ane idea, how i can go past tht???

I would be thankful if you could tell me tht...

Sry abt tht...didn't want to do tht...but i just wanted a quick reply....won't do tht again!!!

Fine :)

It seems you are using the Debian/Ubuntu packages, or an installation out of your /home, so you do not have write permission there.

You can probably fix this by setting the destination of multisolver in your local OpenFOAM directory (FOAM_USER_APPBIN) in the Make/files file.
