Hrushi is on a distinguished road
I am trying to install openFOAM 2.3.1 on opensuse Leap-42.1. I have followed instructions given on
HTML Code:
https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Installation/Linux/OpenFOAM-2.3.1/openSUSE
However I got error while doing third party Allwmake. I have attached the error file.

Please help.

Quick answer: I've got the feeling you're following the instructions that were written for openSUSE 12.3.

You should be following the instructions that were tested in openSUSE 13.2: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...#openSUSE_13.2
For example, step #9 tells you how to create a symbolic link to the existing installation of CGAL.

edit: I've tested the instructions I mentioned on openSUSE Leap 42.1 and it worked fine for me.

following the wiki page I'm getting issues as well with the Allwmake of the thirdparty on OF2.4, as the environment variable CGAL_ARCH does not exist . Note paraview installs fine when you follow the instructions in the Wiki.

I'm currently building OF2.4 as interim to 3.0 and then trying foam extend 3.2 all with Leap 42.1, OPENMPI 1.10.1, OFED 3.18-1 for a 10 server 112 core cluster (none of the releases a month old ... )

Quick answer/question: I assume you're following these instructions that are adapted to OpenFOAM 2.4.0: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...#openSUSE_13.2
As for the environment variable, it's meant to be named "CGAL_ARCH_PATH" and not "CGAL_ARCH" . Did you shorten it for writing here in the post or is the whole name you've tried to use?

A typo in post oops! But I copied and pasted for the install

Mmm... OK, then we will need to do some debugging of the shell environment variables. With the respective OpenFOAM shell environment activated, please run:
Code:
export > log.export 2>&1
gzip < log.export > log.export.gz
Then attach the file "log.export.gz" to your next post. This way it should be possible to fully assess what's going on.

I repeated the install on a fresh copy of leap 42.1 with OFED 3.18-1 and OpenMPI 1.10-1 (combined rpm with infiniband support)
and folowed the install meticulously
missing installing openmpi-devel as this was already included
correcttng a typo
Code:
mkdir -p ~/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0/config   
echo export METIS_VERSION=metis-5.1.0 > ~/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0/config/metis.sh 
echo export METIS_ARCH_PATH=/usr >> ~/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0/config/metis.sh
to
Code:
mkdir -p ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config   
echo export METIS_VERSION=metis-5.1.0 > ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config/metis.sh 
echo export METIS_ARCH_PATH=/usr >> ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config/metis.sh
and adapting to the alternate location for the install
Code:
/opt/OpenFOAM
# instead of 
$HOME/OpenFOAM
ignoring the error reported at
Code:
cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR   
mkdir -p $CGAL_ARCH_PATH 
ln -s /usr/include $CGAL_ARCH_PATH/include
and it worked! no errors in the log so I must have made a mistake in the previous install

Hi Derek,

Many thanks for the feedback! But I'm finding this change you did very strange:

echo export METIS_ARCH_PATH=/usr >> ~/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0/config/metis.sh
to
Code:
mkdir -p ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config   
echo export METIS_VERSION=metis-5.1.0 > ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config/metis.sh 
echo export METIS_ARCH_PATH=/usr >> ~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config/metis.sh
Try running the following commands:
Code:
foamEtcFile config/metis.sh
foamEtcFile -list
The first one should give you the path to your file "~/.OpenFOAM-2.4.0/config/metis.sh".
The second one shows the folders it looks into, for example in my case:
Code:
/home/ofuser/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0
/home/ofuser/.OpenFOAM
/home/ofuser/OpenFOAM/site/2.4.0
/home/ofuser/OpenFOAM/site
/home/ofuser/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc
And you might want to double check the environment variables:
Code:
echo $METIS_VERSION
echo $METIS_ARCH_PATH
Best regards,
Bruno

Note I have my installation at /opt/OpenFOAM not in $HOME. I now see the metis definitions are per user and in $HOME/.OpenFOAM/2.4.0/config/metis.sh


its a bit difficult in the wiki entry to see which bits are per installation and which bits are per user

I'm now Reading the $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/bashrc file trying to understand what the bits do

The metis.sh file does not get called from $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/bashrc
. This is the excerpt from the $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/bashrc
where you would expect it. There is not instance of the characters 'metis' in the entire file
Code:

# Source user setup files for optional packages
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
_foamSource `$WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/foamEtcFile config/paraview.sh`
_foamSource `$WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/foamEtcFile config/ensight.sh`
_foamSource `$WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/foamEtcFile config/gperftools.sh`
_foamSource `$WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/foamEtcFile config/CGAL.sh`

if I have this in my $HOME/.bashrc

Code:
export FOAM_VERBOSE=TRUE

ulimit -l unlimited

export PATH=/usr/lib64/openmpi/:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/openmpi/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export FOAM_INST_DIR=/opt/OpenFOAM
foamDotFile=$FOAM_INST_DIR/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/bashrc
[ -f $foamDotFile ] && . $foamDotFile
this is what i see
Code:
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/settings.sh
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/aliases.sh
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/paraview.sh
Using paraview
    ParaView_DIR         : /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.4.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-4.1.0
    ParaView_LIB_DIR     : /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.4.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-4.1.0/lib/paraview-4.1
    ParaView_INCLUDE_DIR : /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.4.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-4.1.0/include/paraview-4.1
    PV_PLUGIN_PATH       : /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/paraview-4.1
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/ensight.sh
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/gperftools.sh
Sourcing: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/CGAL.sh
Using CGAL and boost
    CGAL-4.6 at /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.4.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/CGAL-4.6
    boost-system at /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.4.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/boost-system

Quick answer: I didn't mention how "metis.sh" is used, because I was more concerned on the correct file being found.
But I had completely forgotten that the "metis.sh" is used only when it's necessary to use it for building the library that uses it.
It's only used/called in "OpenFOAM-*/src/parallel/decompose/metisDecomp/Allwmake" and "ThirdParty-*/Allwmake".
