Hi Foamers,

Pure OpenFOAM-1.6-ext compile went nearly as in the movies, a lot of development during the year. I added also the branch ”mixingPlane_RC1”.

Some notes from compiling found. Swak4Foam-0.2.0 compilation does not go through with when multiple processor are used (WM_NCOMPPROCS=8 on OF compiling), in other words, “export WM_NCOMPPROCS=1” is needed on before “AllMake.stage5”.

Second notes related to qt-libraries. When the ThirdParty QT is used the “QT_DIR” and “QT_BIN_DIR” must be defined, so that paraFoam works. Without this definition the following message appeats when I try to start the ParaFOAM

/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/paraview-3.14/paraview: symbol lookup error: 
/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/paraview-3.14/ undefined symbol: 
_ZN9QMetaType15registerTypedefEPKci ”
Also PV3FoamReader was compiled again after defining the QT paths because it found the system qt. It seems that paraview/OpenFOAM found the system qt libraries without extra definitions.
