I compiled mesquite 2.3.0 with openfoam 2.2x and dynamicTopoFvMesh-port2.2.x. Everything compiles fine, but when I try to tun a case I am getting this error


Selecting motion solver: mesquiteMotionSolver
--> FOAM Warning : 
    From function dlOpen(const fileName&, const bool)
    in file POSIX.C at line 1179
    dlopen error : /home/joegi/OpenFOAM/joegi-2.2.x/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZTVN9Mesquite217LaplacianSmootherE

    in file /home/joegi/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/dlLibraryTableTemplates.C at line 67
    Could not open library ""

Unknown solver type mesquiteMotionSolver

Valid solver types are:


    From function motionSolver::New(const polyMesh&)
    in file motionSolver/motionSolver/motionSolver.C at line 129.

FOAM exiting

Any clue what could be the problem?. Btw I get the same error with mesquite 2.2.0. I am using a case that works fine with openfoam 2.1.x and mesquite 2.2.0.

I have seen the same problem. But when I copy the content under the folder mesquit lib ( to OpenFOAM lib folder, the problem disappeared.

Hi Foamers:

I have also been some difficulties for compiling mesquite-2.3.0 and dynamicTopoFvMesh with OpenFoam-2.2.x. I followed the Install.txt of Sandeep but it is necessary to copy: and and of the repertory:

Hello everyone,

I've just had the exact same issue on foam-extend-4.0 and solved it using the trick pointed out by Olivier, here's the quick command to run in bash:

for i in $(ls ~/foam/foam-extend-4.0/ThirdParty/packages/mesquite-2.1.2/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/*); do ln -sT $i ~/foam/foam-extend-4.0/lib/linux64GccDPOpt/$(basename $i);done
Best Regards,
