Dear Foamer

In compiling OF 1.7.1, I get the following error:

cannot find -lfiniteVolume

I had already installed OF 1.6.X in my PC and I don't thing I lack gcc, which other packages you think I lack that results in this problem?

I use ubuntu 8.04

Thanks
Ehsan

Hi Ehsan,

As I understand OpenFOAM-1.7 needs gcc-4.3.x or later to compile while ubuntu 8.04 comes with gcc-4.2. My advice is to upgrade your distro to 10.04 which is a Long Term Support version.

If you can't upgrade talk to your admin, he'll have to install gcc-4.3 or later. You could also try to compile the gcc version that comes with openfoam-1.6 and then use that gcc to compile 1.7.

There is a good thread that you might want to check out

OpenFOAM 1.6.x Installer for Ubuntu

The packages I needed to install on ubuntu 10.04 where

Code:
binutils-dev flex bison git-core build-essential python-dev libreadline5-dev wget zlib1g-dev cmake libpng12-dev libxt-dev libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libglib2.0-dev freeglut3-dev libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools
Best of luck

Nicolas

Greetings to all!

To complement Nicolas answer: Automated scripts for building gcc 4.4.x and 4.5.x for using with OpenFOAM 1.7 series

I am a newbie to OpenFOAM....I am trying the source pack installation of Openfoam 1.7.1. I was able to compile Openfoam without any error but when I used the utility to test the installation (i.e. foamInstallationTest), it gave me following output:

Does this output indicates a successful compilation or something is not correct?

If anybody knows about this stuff, please help me out.
I appreciate your help in advance.
