Default OpenFOAM on mac OSX

Is anyone using OpenFOAM on Mac OS X?

I have a Macbook running OSX, 10.5 and am trying to run OpenFOAM to analyse some as aspects of a Formula Student car I am designing.

I have attempted to follow the instructions here:

I seem to be getting stuck with the .bashrc file.

If anyone has any experience of this could they help me?

Cheers Nick

Have you posted this on the OpenFOAM forum? Maybe it would be easier to get help there.

I do not want to be accused of dropping names, but try and chase prof. Eric Paterson form Penn State. He recently switched his OpenFOAM work onto a Mac and he's spreading the good news. I am sure he will be able to offer some guidance or even provide a dmg for you.

We are looking at the best way to provide easy access to OpenFOAM on a Mac - please check the Forum.

Use .profile file instead of .bashrc file.
