Hi

I am trying to install OpenFOAM-3.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit system. I am following instructions written here

But I am getting error at step 9, i.e., when building thirdParty packages. There is error when building CGAL and scotch. I have gone through this page

The first error related to scotch can be ignored according to above link. But I am clueless about the second error which appears while building CGAL. I have attached the log file to this post.

System details:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty
cmake version 2.8.12.2
gcc version 4.8.4 (Ubuntu 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04.3)
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.8.6 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
mpirun (Open MPI) 1.6.5

Can anyone help me out?

Quick answer: Please run the following commands:
Code:
cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
sed -e 's/\(Release\)/\1 -DWITH_CGAL_ImageIO=OFF/' makeCGAL
Then go back to step #9 and try again.

If this works, I'll revise the instructions on the wiki and report this to the bug tracker.

Hi Bruno,

Code:
cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
sed -e 's/\(Release\)/\1 -DWITH_CGAL_ImageIO=OFF/' makeCGAL
Yes, this did work. ThirdParty libraries were succesfully built. (log.make.gz)

Then I proceeded with further installation.

The error came while building paraVIEW with python support. I have attached the log file. (log.makePV.gz)

However, I went ahead and built PARAVIEW without python support by removing -python and -pyhton-lib options in command at step 10. (log.makePVwp.gz)

ParaView got successfully built without python support.

Building of OpenFOAM went without any glitch.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hrushi

The error message claims that Python 2.7 is not installed... what do the following commands give you?
Code:
python --version
which python
ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython*.so*

Python is only needed if you want to record/run macros/scripts within ParaView. It can be useful, once you start getting familiar with it or feel the need to have scripting capabilities.

These are the answers.

Code:

Python 2.7.6
Code:
which python
/usr/bin/python
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython*.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      19 Oct 27  2016 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so.1 -> libpython2.7.so.1.0

Yes, I would like to have this useful functionality.

Thanks

Quick answer: I didn't notice this before, but it looks like the error is due to the package "libpython2.7-dev" not being installed in your system. I don't know how it didn't get installed, but please confirm first if the following command:
Code:
ls -l /usr/include/python2.7/Python.h
gives you this:
Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4329 Out 26  2016 /usr/include/python2.7/Python.h
If it doesn't or at least it doesn't give something similar, then it's because the package "libpython2.7-dev" is not installed.

If it does, then it looks like the installation is somehow damaged.

To install the package:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libpython2.7-dev
To repair the installation:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall  libpython2.7-dev

Hi Bruno,

Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall  libpython2.7-dev
Yes, after repairing the installtion of python, I was able to build Paraview with python support too.

Thanks
