Hi Foamers.

Back with a question.

I just came to know that openfoam also has an extension available in sourceforgenet. I am interested in installing it.

Just starting with a simple and stupid question.

1. Can I have both the extension version as well as the normal openfoam version in the .bashrc?

2. if that is the case I added the source and echo part in the shell script and the original version of OF doesn't run.

3. I want to have the extension version of 3.1 to be precise. I tried to install it from the terminal and it failed (connection timed out), I tried to get the snapshot.tgz. But I get some other .zip file named:

So, are both the compressed files same or am I searching in the wring place.
