Default reactingFoam vs rhoReactingFoam

I just downloaded OpenFOAM (1.7.1) (SUSE linux) and I got reactingFoam but did not get rhoReactingFoam. Would someone be so kind as to compare and contrast the two? Why use one versus the other? I see reactingFoam uses hCombustionThermo.H and psiChemistryModel.H while rhoReactingFoam uses hReactingThermo.H and rhoChemistryModel.H. What am I missing by not having rhoReactingFoam? Thanks!

same here
And I'm interested in a incompressible combustion solver, any suggestion?

Dear colleagues,

Did you ever get an answer to your question or resolve this issue?

I am attempting to simulate a high pressure hydrogen release from a pipe using ReactingFoam (release only = no chemistry and no reaction) and wish to run it as an incompressible flow (simplification)

Is it possible to modify the ReactingFoam solver from compressible to incompressible?

Many thanks,
