Novell launched the OpenSuSE project, through which the SuSE Linux 9.3 (both 32 and 64 bit) distribution and the beta version of SuSE 10 have been made available to the community through the site:

http://opensuse.org/index.php/Welcome_to_openSUSE.org

Both CD and DVD iso's are avabilable for both versions of the distribution.

Because OpenFOAM is developed on SuSE, I thought this could be useful to OpenFOAM users. Sorry if it's OT.

Best regards,
Alberto

Hi, Alberto,

I noticed that the 64 bit DVD version is an Eval version. Is this fully functional? Thanks!

Hello Pei,
it should be fully functional. Novell released the full SuSE Linux Professiona 9.3 to the community with the OpenSuSE project.

I didn't tried the 64 bit version, but here http://suse.inode.at/pub/x86_64/9.3/iso/README_eval.txt you can read:

What's the difference between the CD and DVD edition
================================================== ==

* the DVD edition contains the complete 64-bit version of
SUSE LINUX Professional 9.3 as well as a streamlined 32bit
version of the software.
* the CD edition contains a complete 32-bit version of SUSE
LINUX Professional 9.3. It including approximately 450
additional packages not available on the 32-bit version
included on the downloadable DVD image. These additional
packages are mostly language packages for applications and
development versions of various software libraries.

If you're going to download it, the Chemnitz server is fast ;-)

Regards,
Alberto

Hi,
I've tried the 64-bit version of Suse 9.3, and so far I haven't been able to compile my code. It uses the correct version of gcc and everything. Has anyone tried OpenFoam with 64-bit SuSE, with success?

did you check that it picks up the right library? tends to be a problem with mixed 32/64 bit platforms...

Hello,
I get the following error, I haven't done much more than just install OpenFoam with the source and 64-bit libraries.

It looks like you haven't installed the system header files for the operating system. Check you have /usr/include/limits.h installed, if not install the operating system code development option which includes this file.

OpenSuSE 10.2 is out and OpenFOAM works OK on it.

The only little inconvenient I found relatively to FOAM, is that the maximize button of the paraview window doesn't work. However it's possible to manually resize the window and paraview will remember the new size.

This release of OpenSUSE solves many of the issues of the package manager which were present in 10.1.

The download page is here:

http://en.opensuse.org/Released_Version

With kind regards,
Alberto

I found an issue while using OpenFOAM on openSUSE 10.2.
The OpenFOAM settings in bashrc makes OpenOffice unusable because of the different versions of libc (4.2 in OpenSuSE, 4.1 in OpenFoam).

Regards,
Alberto

Solution to the previous issue:

- Remove the gcc version provided with OpenFOAM.
- Run ./Allwmake from the OpenFOAM main directory to recompile everything using the gcc installed in the system.

Alberto
