Greetings Fellows

I installed OpenFOAM 2.1.x and related codes such as paraview 3.12.0 and flameletFoam and some other codes using cantera on my ubuntu 11.10.

Since ubuntu 11.10 is not supported anymore, I have problems in installing new softwares and modules like teamviewer and matplotlib. I want to upgrade my ubuntu to 12.04.5 LTS. However, my concern is the mismatch between the new version of ubuntu and the codes installed in older version of ubuntu (paraview 3.12.0, cantera based look-up table maker, OpenFOAM 2.1.x, .... ).


Would some body with experience on this issue hint me that any mismatch would happen or not?

Best,
Bobi

Hi there,
since you are taking the effort to upgrade I'd recommend a clean install of the newest LTS 14.04.
then you'll be able to install the newest releases for the needed software too.
Don't know about cantera but I can guarantee for Openfoam 2.3.1 and paraview 4.1.0

Greetings to all!

@Bobi: I vaguely remember already having answered a similar question here on the forum... let's see if I can find it... I didn't even need to Google it, because it's at the bottom of the forum for suggestions of related threads: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post504508

Interesting, with Google I also found this one: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post504512

The interesting detail is that those two answers of mine were posted less than 20 minutes apart!


Either way, based on your description and use case scenario, I strongly advise you to rebuild the whole source code of OpenFOAM, along with the custom toolboxes you're using with it. Running the following commands should pretty much clean up your system:

    Code:
    ./Allclean
  3. Back to the main folder "OpenFOAM-2.1.1":
    Code:
    foam
  4. Clean all as well:
    Code:
    wcleanAll
5. Build everything as you did before.

6. When building the custom software, the one based in OpenFOAM technology can usually be done by simply running:
Code:
wclean all
wmake all
from within the main source code of the respective software.
This is mainly because there is usually always at least one very small detail that is different in one of the system libraries when upgrading a Linux Distribution, which might affect your built OpenFOAM, either performance-wise or can lead to problems when compiling new solvers/utilities that link to OpenFOAM, as stated in at least one of the threads above.

Best regards,
Bruno
