Hi!
I'm a newcomer to OpenFOAM, and when I tried to compile OpenFOAM 2.0.1, everything seemed to be fine except...

WARNING: Conflicting installations:
OpenFOAM settings : /home/mirage/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/bin/icoFoam
current path :
CRITICAL ERROR

Summary
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Base configuration ok.
The foam installation contains 1 critical error(s).

Can somebody tell me what am I doing wrong?

Thank you.

Greetings Winston and welcome to the forum!

You can check this post: Fedora 15 install help post #4 - it's a bit old, since those instructions were for OpenFOAM 1.7.x, but they are easily adaptable to 2.0.1 and/or 2.0.x.

But what you probably need to know from that post is this:
  1. The packages necessary for building OpenFOAM in Fedora:
    Code:
    yum install gcc gcc-c++ binutils-devel flex git-core wget cmake qt4-devel python-devel readline-devel bison ncurses-devel tix.x86_64 glibc-devel flex zlib-devel libXt-devel binutils-static python-devel qt-devel cmake flex patch
  2. Keep a log of the build process:
    Code:
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
    The first occurrence of an error is usually the indicative of the responsible problem.
  3. If you aren't able to verify what the problem is, run:
    Code:
    tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
    Then attach the file make.log.tar.gz to your next post.
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno!

Thank you!Dealing with my headache and had no access to cfd-online. Sorry for absent><

I compiled OpenFOAM successfully but when I run paraFoam, it seemed there are some problems...

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake

I did as the instruction above and it still didn't work!

Then I tried to compile the paraView module by ./makeParaView, and

it didn't work ><

Then I followed the post Fedora 15 install help post to install paraView from fedora Repository and set the environment. It didn't work either.

Try running paraFoam like this:
Code:
paraFoam -builtin
As for building ParaView itself, I'll check it in a while as to what might be missing...

_______________
edit: stupid Fedora... they changed the name for qmake to qmake-qt4... you'll have to run makeParaView like this:
Code:
./makeParaView -qmake `which qmake-qt4`
But before that, do as indicated here: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/blo...tml#comment760 - Or better, run this command on the same folder where makeParaView is:
Code:
sed -i -e 's=ptrdiff_t=std::ptrdiff_t='  ParaView-3.10.1/VTK/Utilities/vtkmetaio/metaUtils.cxx
This will fix the compiler bug, namely the error you got.
_______________

edit 2: well, in case someone who is reading this wants to use Fedora's OpenMPI version, here's a few more steps to be made before building OpenFOAM:
  1. Install openmpi with development stuff:
    Code:
    yum install openmpi-devel
  2. Add a few more details to OpenFOAM's environment (this is assuming x86_64 version of Fedora):
    Code:
    foam
    echo export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI > etc/prefs.sh
    echo module load openmpi-x86_64  >> etc/prefs.sh
    echo export WM_COMPILER=Gcc46 >> etc/prefs.sh
    echo export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4 >> etc/prefs.sh
    WM_NCOMPPROCS=4 specifies the number of cores to use during the building process.
  3. Log out and log back in... or even reboot, since this is necessary for the "module" system to work properly.
  4. The rest is the same as usual.
_______________

Best regards,
Bruno

I can confirm that bug - when it came up first time I installed paraview I panicked, but fortunately that was the only bug and it was only in that file! Glad to see I'm not the only one who bumped into it!

Hi Laurence,

Well, for future reference, this has already been fixed for ParaView 3.12: http://paraview.org/Bug/view.php?id=12157 - but I don't have a clue when will it come out...

Best regards,
Bruno
