I am new to both ubuntu and openfoam. I followed the instructions found on the open foam website here

http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php

The following is what happened up to step 2

step 1

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ VERS=$(lsb_release -cs)
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo sh -c "echo deb http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu $VERS main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list"

step2

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


Being new this all seems pretty cryptic. The "Installation issues" section on the link above doesnt seem to provide an answer as it gives the same result. I was hoping someone could give some direction.

Hi,

here's a quote from the site:

Quote:
OpenFOAM and Paraview are currently available for the following versions of Ubuntu:

12.04 LTS, codename precise
12.10, codename quantal
13.04, codename raring
13.10, codename saucy
so "cryptic"

Code:

just means "there's no binary distribution for 14.04". I guess you should go with Source Pack installation (or maybe binary from 13.10 will work, in this case you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list so it points to 13.10 debs)

nope, i tried that, using "saucy" in the .list file,
paraviewopenfoam could be installed, and openfoam230 could be found, but it says
Code:
openfoam230 : Depends: libboost-thread1.53.0 but it is not installable
               Depends: libopenmpi1.3 but it is not installable
I checked that in synaptic, ubuntu already has the latest version of the two.
so i guess the source build is the best solution.
by the way, isn't the git version better to be played with anyway??

It depends. If you need to play, use whatever version you'd like, if you need to run simulations that can be reproduced by others in general it is better to use release version.
