I am currently running OpenFOAM on a Fedora 12 64-bit computer in a remote location I followed the instructions and inputted the following:

. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc

and then:

. $HOME/.bashrc

I can run OpenFOAM fine when i am physically on the remote computer but once i go off-site and try to get into it using the NX Client the desktop appears black.

So; after many hours... I deleted the line . $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc from the .bashrc file and then . $HOME/.bashrc

miraculously afterward i used the NX Client and it connected right to the desktop. But i can't run the code

Is there a work around for using this OpenFOAM bashrc file??

Hi

You could try creating an alias for OF in your $HOME/.bashrc file like so

Code:
alias OF=". $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc"
Then it will load all the OpenFOAM settings by running OF from the terminal.

Hello again MechE,

The script $HOME/.bashrc is always called when you start a new terminal/console. Now, if you have changed the script and want the changes to be applied, then you can either:
  • source it:
    Code:
    . $HOME/.bashrc
  • run the changes directly in the command line;
  • or open a new terminal/console.
As for the NX Server issue, hopefully, after you follow Linnemann's instructions, start a new terminal or source the .bashrc script, then verify if the NX Server hasn't gone blind. Then setup the OpenFOAM's environment by typing OF and hit return/enter on the desired terminal and voilá... it either goes dark or it works

If it does goes dark again, then it's really weird! The only justification I can think of would be if you were running a single remote terminal without X windows (Gnome, KDE, etc...). The other idea, is if it goes black right after you launch Paraview/paraFoam...

Keep us posted on new developments

Best regards,
Bruno
