When installing OF on a 32 bits opensuse11.1 partition, every thing works fine including paraFoam, but when trying to do the same on a 64 bits opensuse11.1, paraFoam does not work. What library is missing? or what should be installed in order to make paraFoam run? and Yes I have Qt 4.3.5 installed

Hi Ahmed,

you might have to recompile paraView yourself.

Thank you for trying, it is more than that, Of course I have recompiled paraFoam and the PV3FoamReader, but that has not solved the problem

Thank you for replying. May I ask how, and what file.
I have inserted the last two lines at the foot of the bashrc but that has not solved the problem, still the paraFoam cannot find a decent visual and aborts

export ParaView_INST_DIR=/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs
export ParaView_DIR=/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Gcc
export PV_PLUGIN_PATH=/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/lib/linux64GccDPOpt
export PATH=/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/Qt-4.3.5/bin:/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Gcc/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/Qt-4.3.5/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
set WM_64=1
export WM_64

try making a symbolic link from the folder ParaView3.3-cvs to ParaView-3.3-cvs or the other way around. (in thirdparty folder that is)

This advice is unfortunately wrong for the current (1.5.x) version.
The default on x86_64 systems is 64-bit, so you needn't do anything (unless you have some old env values floating about).
If you wish to explicitly change between 32 and 64 bit on these systems, the WM_ARCH_OPTION is available for this purpose.

The convenience aliases 'wm32' and 'wm64' are available (see etc/aliases.{csh,sh}).
