OK, I had built mine with Gcc 4.6, so I apparently also had even more issues than your build has.

I've switched to Gcc 4.4.6 as well on my Ubuntu 11.10. For that, I've modified OpenFOAM's "etc/bash" to have these settings:
Code:
export WM_CC='gcc-4.4'
export WM_CXX='g++-4.4'
Additionally, I messed up on the previous diff. The proper lines for "wmake/rules/linux64Gcc/c++" and "wmake/rules/linuxGcc/c++" are:
Code:
LINKLIBSO   = $(CC) $(c++FLAGS) -shared -Xlinker --add-needed -Xlinker --no-as-needed
LINKEXE     = $(CC) $(c++FLAGS) -Xlinker --add-needed -Xlinker --no-as-needed
It's going to take a while to rebuild 1.7.x from scratch. I'll make another post when I have news, although I'm not sure if it will be in the next hour...

If I hadn't inspected the "make.log" sooner, it would have been a wasted hour... here's the necessary patch, which without the settings from bashrc won't propagate to wmake (swap "linux64Gcc" to "linuxGcc" for 32bit):

wclean all

Yuri, in case you don't know, you can build with multi-core by running this command before Allwmake:
Code:
export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4
This is for 4 cores, i.e. 4 parallel threads for building OpenFOAM.

Hi Yuri,

OK, I've finished confirming this. With the info from the last 2 posts, you should succeed in building everything.

Keep in mind:
  1. I've tested things with 64bit, but left instructions on what's different for the 32bit build.
  2. And later on don't forget to run Allwclean first in the "fireFoam.1.7.x_0.4" folder.
Best regards,
Bruno

That is a great news, Bruno! I'm trying to compiling the OF also, utilizing yours implementations, I rope that this time it will work.

I will post the results here soon.

Hi Bruno,

I really want to thank you so much for your support! The OF17x compilation worked. In addition to your corrections, I changed the variable WM_ARCH_OPTION, which was set by default 64, but my Ubuntu is 32 bits. Could be this one of the reasons for the previous failures?

After this, I finally compiled successfully the fireFoam.1.7.x_0.4! So, the big deal was really the OF17x compilation.

Thanks again for your help!

If possible can you change in the git repository

It will be of great help ...

Thank You

It's simple : in comment #22, whenever you find the text "linux64Gcc" in the instructions, change it to "linuxGcc".

If I'm not mistaken, this is what it should be like for "linuxGcc":
