Did you activate the OpenFOAM environment? Namely, sourced the bashrc file like so:
Code:
. /home/usersim/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/etc/bashrc
And don't forget the space after the first dot!

Best regards,
Bruno

i activate the environmental variables for OF. i rebulid paraview in " /home/usersim/OpenFOAM/Third Party-1.6/; but when i run ./foamInstallationTest i receive the following error

Summary
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Base configuration ok.

The foam installation contains 2 critical error(s).

Review the output for warning messages and consult
the installation guide for trouble shooting.

done.

Also, when i want to run a tutorial or to start paraview i receive this error

If 'blockMesh' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf blockMesh

or for paraview

If 'paraFoam' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf paraFoam

Can you tell me why?

I want to use the software like an user, not like root, because like root i manage to install the software in the root directory, but is not a very good a idea to work like root on linux since im a beginner(don't want o install linux every 2 days).

Best Regards,

Ovidiu

Hi Ovidiu,

OK, on the first post you lead me to believe that you were trying to build OpenFOAM 1.6.x... but it seems that you want to build OpenFOAM 1.6.

OpenFOAM 1.6 does not build with gcc 4.4.x (your suse's version of gcc), it only builds with gcc 4.3.x.

So, my best guess is for you to follow Alberto's tutorial on how to install OpenFOAM 1.6.x in openSUSE 11.2: http://albertopassalacqua.com/?p=532

Best regards,
Bruno

Hello Bruno,

i follow Alberto's tutorial for building my OF, but i didn't download the OF-1.6.x clone from his site. I download the software from openfoam site, OF-1.6 and Third part.

following his instructions, I manage to install it on root. then,i erase the folder and i install it on "/home/usersim/OpenFOAM" and it's working perfectly, when im login like root; but when im login like user, is not running the OF; i don't want to be root every time when im running this software; i want to be user(in my case "usersim").

1. my question is, why is not working when im "usersim" and is working ok when im root?
2. i have to download Alberto's clone of OF-1.6.x, to properly running the software like user?


my linux platform is SUSE 11.2 32 bits.

Best Regards,
Ovidiu

Greetings Ovidiu,

Firstly, you should be able to build OpenFOAM with your user account! The root account should only be necessary for installing the necessary SUSE packages for building OpenFOAM.

Secondly, by what I can understand in your description, you've moved the OpenFOAM folder, that was built with the root account, into the user account folder; you should also execute the following command under root to give the folder to the user:
Code:
chown -R usersim:usersim /home/usersim/OpenFOAM
Thridly, as I've said before, one can only build OpenFOAM 1.6 using gcc 4.3.x and OpenFOAM 1.6.x can be built with either gcc 4.3.x or 4.4.x.
Therefore, you have two possibilities:
  1. You can build/use OpenFOAM 1.6, using the precompiled gcc 4.3.3 that comes with OpenFOAM's binaries and follow the instructions available on http://www.openfoam.com/docs/README.php
  2. You can follow Alberto's instructions to install OpenFOAM 1.6.x, if you want to use SUSE's gcc 4.4.1 compiler.
Ah, by the way, since you are using the 32 bit version of SUSE, don't forget to edit the file OpenFOAM-1.6.x/etc/bashrc and change the variable WM_ARCH_OPTION from 64 to 32.

Best regards,
Bruno
