Hey Guys

I have just installed OpenFOAM 1.5 and was also able to compile paraview 3.3 on ubuntu 9.04 after so much hassle. I am able to run blockMesh and icoFoam but each time I try running paraFoam I get the folowing error message:

Segmentation fault
I am a new linux user and need someone to guide on solving this problem. Thanks in advance.

would it be possible for you to read the following article:

it might help you pin pointing the cause

Use foam to vtk and then use paraview 3.4 downloaded form their site. Forget parafoam.

I would second using paraview with VTK. I am new to OpenFOAM and am running on a system where I could not compile the paraview that came with OpenFOAM. Converting to VTK seems to work just fine for me.

I was playing around with the icoFoam example. The command I used at the prompt was:
foamToVTK -case cavity


Then I starte paraview and opend the VTK directory in the case.
