I am new to OpenFOAM and Linux and could use some assistance. I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and installed OpenFOAM-2.3.0 succesfully (atleast I thought).

after installing I ran the tests and everything worked fine. I then took a break and logged off Linux. When I returned to learning OpenFOAM. I noticed that I could not run any tutorials. When I run 'of230' which i assume you use to start openfoam I am not able to use the tutorials. When Typing -icoFoam -help i get the following message

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-version.c: 224: _dl_check_map_versions: Assertion `needed != ((void *)0)' failed!

When I run the foamInstallationTest it seems ok. I get the following. Am I doing something wrong or missing something fundamental to Linux?

Done



Am I missing something?

Thank you

Code:
Base configuration ok.
Critical systems ok.
that looks good..

Did you compile or install the binaries? What about just typing

Code:
which icoFoam
I see a dash in front of icoFoam in your post above, which isn't correct. Did you adjust your .bashrc file in your home directory as it is stated in these instruction?

Thank you for your reply Dan. I followed the installation instruction from:

http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_14.04

The -icoFoam was just a typo I made. I wasn't entering that into the terminal.

I uninstalled, and deleted the folders and reinstalled it. It now allows me to enter icoFoam -help and get the proper response.

So this brings me to the follow up question. Why did it fail last time? Did I fail to load the OpenFoam program properly? and that gave me the error I was getting?

There are a number of reasons why it could have failed, and there is no way of knowing now. The key is to make sure that you have everything sourced correctly in your .bashrc and you have an up to date version installed. write back if you experience more problems.

Everything seems to be working correctly now. I'm not sure what happened last time. It worked fine the first time I installed it. I went to windows for a while and came back to linux and this error. I'm not sure if something happened there. Either way it seems ok now and I appreciate your response.

Being new to OpenFoam could you possibly point me to some good references? Mostly looking for some basic aerodynamic applications using OpenFoam.

Thank you

You can search through the forum since this question is asked a lot. I would go to this one

http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post410938

For a more technical and long read, I would read the dissertations by

Dr. Jasak and another by Dr. de Villiers which are located here. The Dissertations by Rusche and Mangani are also good, but on a topic different than what you are going for. Good luck.

Hi,

I have the same error, also with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and I have installed with the same link as you : http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_14.04

I will try with the repository package, as it is mentioned in http://openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php

Same error here. I can't figure it out!

I installed same as per romainRH's link.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


And does anyone know when the 14.04 package will come out?

thanks romainRH. I might try that.

How do you remove it? Do I simply rm the OpenFOAM directories?

I tried modifying .bashrc with no luck. I spent a bit of time on that method.

I started from scratch and reinstalled as suggested by romainRH and it works now.

thanks romainRH
