The reason why funkySetFields refuses to guess which time you want to use is that it is possibly destructive (it may overwrite your old data) and I don't want people running around crying "I didn't know it writes to the last time. Now my results are gone"
Thanks again gschaider.
I reinstalled the latest swak4foam from the website
https://github.com/Unofficial-Extend...r-openfoam-240
But, this time after ./Allwmake , I have got :-
make: Target 'application' not remade because of errors.
I even did :- ./Allwclean then ./Allwmake and still have this issue!

This is a fork. It may or may not be outdated. I only the versions downloaded via SVN and HG as described on http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...am#Downloading

That can be a lot of things the real problem should be a bit further up in the output (look for "error:")

As I explained before: your previous installation seems to have worked fine. You just used it wrong.

On your other installation: the error message you give doesn't say anything about what went wrong. It just says THAT something went wrong. Look further up in the output for the cause

And writing these reponses consumes time as well so please read them

Hi nimasam:-
I found the best way to install swak4foam is to follow the following steps:-
cd ∼/ OpenFOAM
mkdir swak4foam
cd swak4foam
svn checkout https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo...runk/Breeder_2 .0/libraries/swak4Foam/

Note:- If you face any bugs with the last command, replace it with the following:-
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/svn/trunk/Breeder_1.7/libraries/swak4Foam@1998 swak4Foam

Hope that works for you.
my best

You're going to face a number of other errors as well. OF 5 is now out for a week. If someone changes the version from 4.x to 5.x then usually there are changes that will break other software. Which is the case here

I already fixed the compilation but didn't check the functionality. Once I've done that I'll push to the repository (weekend if all runs well. Later if there are problems. )

Hello everyone,

I'm also facing some issues installing swak4foam. I've searched the forum yet couldn't come up with a solution for my error.
I'm using OF 1606+. I downloaded swak4foam on the obvious distribution page.

I attached my log-file.

I hope anyone could help me, i'm struggling since a few days now.

Kind regards

That is a problem with OF 1606+. To quote from the README
Code:
**** Support for OpenFOAM v1606+
     This version is supported in the this version of
     =swak4Foam=. There is only one problem: there were changes to the
     =tmp=-template. These changes have been taken care of in the
     =swak4Foam=-sources. *But* there are two source files in the
     distro that need to be modified (basically adding =.ref()=
     instead of =()= in three places:
: src/finiteVolume/finiteVolume/fvc/fvcD2dt2.C
: src/finiteVolume/fvMatrices/fvMatrix/fvMatrixSolve.C
     Therefor the officially released version will *never* compile
     with =swak4Foam= but this is nothing that can be fixed in
     =swak4Foam= (the patch is found in the directory
     =distroPatches/OpenFOAM-v1606+=)
BTW: do yourself a favour and unset the German settings on shells that you use for compiling when looking for hel. If I wouldn't speak German it would have never occured to me that the compiler error is prefixed with "Fehler:" instead of the usual "Error:" (don't know why they do that if all the other compiler output is not translated)

Dear Bernhard Gschaider

Is swak4Foam available for OpenFOAM-5.0 ?

Not in the default branch but in the develop branch for more than a month https://twitter.com/swakPyFoam/statu...29065463332864

Hello everyone,

hopefully it's okay that I use this very old thread, but the topic fits very well with my problem:

Is it possible to install and compile swak4foam for more than one user on a computer with several accounts? And how can I do it?

Thank you for your help!

Stefanie

Yep. You've just got to make the libraries and applications available in a directory that is accessed by everyone. Recommended for that are the ones specified in the environment variables FOAM_SITE_LIBBIN and FOAM_SITE_APPBIN (FOAM_LIBBIN and FOAM_APPBIN can but should not be used)


There are two ways:
  1. After compilation use the script maintainanceScripts/copySwakFilesToSite.sh that comes with swak to copy the binaries from your installation
  2. Before compilation temporarily point "your" bin directories to the site directories using something like "export FOAM_USER_LIBBIN=$FOAM_SITE_LIBBIN" (similar for APP)
Of course you'll need write-access to the SITE-directories.

The file in attachment should help, as it's the patch provided in the bug report. To apply it, do the following steps:
  1. Download the attached file "writeFieldsGeneralFunctionObject.C.patch".
  2. In the terminal, go to the folder where you have the swak4Foam source code and run the following command:
    Code:
    patch -p1 < ~/Downloads/writeFieldsGeneralFunctionObject.C.patch
    Where I'm assuming you downloaded the file into the folder "~/Downloads/", so change it to your need
  3. Now you can run "Allwmake" once again, as you did before.
Best regards,
Bruno








Hi Bruno
I have tried the same commands but these are not working in my case.Can you please help me with this

Screenshots are not a good way to report problems. They can not be searched.



My oldest OF-installation is OF2.3. So I can't comment on your problem. But it seems that the errors you've shown are in simpleCloudFunctionObjects. That is a rather obscure library that nothing else depends on, that is only useful if you do lagrangian particles and I think some things it depends on are not in 2.2. If these are the only errors you've got: ignore them and happily use the rest
