Problem with setFields

I'm a new user of OpenFoam on a MacBookPro. I've installed OpenFOAM v.1.5 with ParaView v.3.8.
Only two words to understand the case.
I'm trying to run the "sloshingTank3D6DoF" tutorial because I think is a very close case respect to that I have to develop. I have to model a rigid tank (Dimensions: 60x30x20 cm) partially filled by water subjected to a time history of acceleration. About that I've received the suggest to employ a:
"VOF free surface
flow solver with a moving mesh"
available in OpenFOAM.
Well, every time that I try to run "setFields" to set the liquid phase fraction to 1 I get back from the program this strings of error:
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
Create mesh for time = 0
Setting field default values
--> FOAM Warning :
From function void setFieldType(const fvMesh& mesh, const labelList& selectedCells,Istream& fieldValueStream)
in file setFields.C at line 100
Field gamma not found
wrong token type - expected word found on line 19 the label 0
file: /Users/tommasomassai/OpenFOAM/tommasomassai-1.5/run/tutorials/interDyMFoam/sloshingTank3D6DoF/system/setFieldsDict::defaultFieldValues at line 19.
From function operator>>(Istream&, word&)
in file primitives/strings/word/wordIO.C at line 77.
but there's nothing wrong because I merely run the preset tutorial.
Am I wrong ?
Have you any suggest about that, but also about the simulation that I describe before ?
Every answer is appreciated
thanks to all,

You might check your directories and version numbers. I had a similar problem crop up when I was switching between 1.7.1 and 1.6-ext versions of OpenFOAM. It looks to me like 1.7.1 creates the "0" subdirectory based on the "0.org", while 1.6-ext expects the "0" to be there already. Because of the different assumptions, the Allclean script is slightly different between the two versions.

the error says:
"Field gamma not found"
so look at directory 0, is there any gamma file there?
if there is gamma.org change into gamma
but if you use a higher version of openFoam, it
uses alpha1 instead of gamma so you should change in setFields gamma to alpha1
