OpenFoam 2.1.1 x64 on Fedora 17
Hi everybody,

I'm trying to install OpenFoam on my new Fedora 17. I'm not really into the Linux environment, but even following the step-by-step instruction on I didn't succeed.

When I copy on the terminal the command:


sudo rpm -i
I get the following:


error: Failed dependencies:
        /bin/csh is needed by OpenFOAM-2.1.1-1.x86_64

did someone experienced the same? :confused:
is there any other documentation that I should read about installation?

yum install tcsh
will resolve the dependency if you are willing to live with the c shell being installed.
