Hi,
I'm trying to install openfoam 1.7.1 on our new computer and I keep on getting this error:

Ign http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com natty-updates/universe Translation-en_CA
Ign http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com natty-updates/universe Translation-en
W: Failed to fetch http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubu...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubu...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead
.

I can't proceed from here since it looks like openfoam hasn't been downloaded for installation. Also, it seems none of the source for 64bit is available for download, is that right?

I have to say that, it did work on Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, and not sure if it's coming from the fact that my OS is now 11.04. If the later is true, then it's silly because one would expect the newer version to handle all the "old" stuff unless one is following Microsoft philosophy of always creating job for the boys.

Anyway, if anyone had experience on this or have suggestions, please feel free to drop me lines. Thanks.

I don't believe it is available for 11.04.

If your following the Ubuntu pack installation the first step identifies which version of ubuntu you have.

I think it is better to compile from source.

Perhaps try setting your distribution to maverick at software sources for openfoam

Hi

I encountered the same problem. Updating the source list gives an error that says that Ubuntu canít find the OpenFOAM package. I fixed the problem by entering my distribution directly in the first command you have to execute for installation:

VERS=lucid instead of VERS=`lsb_release -cs`

Not very nice but it should help.

Regards

Fabian

You may try this for installing Openfoam in ubuntu 11.04.

go to terminal and copy paste this as in the OpenFoam site

VERS=`lsb_release -cs`
sudo sh -c "echo deb http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubuntu $VERS main >> /etc/apt/sources.list"


then before going to sudo update go to synaptic package manager, go to repositories then choose the tab Other, there u can see openFOAM repositories select that then click on edit tab change distro natty to maverick then do the same for other openfoam repositories also. Then close it and reload the repositories. Again go to terminal do the rest as in OpenFOAM site, like

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openfoam171
sudo apt-get install paraviewopenfoam381
