Posted September 26, 2010 at 11:35 by wyldckat
Updated April 21, 2011 at 22:08 by wyldckat (Added 4th version of the scripts)
Tags gcc, openfoam

This blog post is meant to centralize my efforts for providing gcc build scripts to the OpenFOAM community. It provides build scripts for gcc 4.3.x, 4.4.x and 4.5.x series.

NOTE: If you don't have internet on the computer where you want to run this script, you can still run these scripts, because they will provide you with instructions on which files to download and where to place them!

These scripts are based on the scripts provided with the patches for cross-compiling...

Updated December 8, 2013 at 10:37 by wyldckat (Added a few more links...)

  • The solution you seek might only come along after reading most of the thread each link points to.

Due to blog post constraint to 10000...
