installing OF 1.6 ext
Hi, All foamers,

Have any body tried to install OF 1.6 ext recently.

When I was running the ThirdParty Allwmake, when it is connecting the, there is no respond. I have tried to log on this website in IE, but failed. It seems this website is down.

Does anyone have the same problem I have??

thank you in advance

Greetings yhaomin2007,

I haven't tested this yet, but you can try these steps:
  1. Edit the file "AllMake.stage3" that is on the folder "ThirdParty";
  2. Find this line:

    ( rpm_make -p ParMGridGen-1.0 -s ParMGridGen-1.0.spec -u      )
  3. Change it to:

    ( rpm_make -p ParMGridGen-1.0 -s ParMGridGen-1.0.spec -u        )

Best regards,

Hi, Bruno,

thank you, your method works. Now I can complete the Allwmake of ThirdParty. But when I was running the Allwmake of OpenFOAM-1.6-ext, it stops and prompt up "make: Target `application' not remade because of errors."

it seems that it has some part of OF running, but some part are not.
Do you met this problem before?

thank you very much

Hi Haomin,

OK, that usually means that something along the line didn't build properly, so everything else that depended on the first one that broke, will also break...

To diagnose this, run Allwmake like this:

./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
Then search for the first occurrence of "Error " and check what the error is. If you have trouble diagnosing the error, search-and-replace any sensitive data (user name and special paths), compress the file and attach the compressed file on your next post.
