Hello,

I'm trying to compile Openfoam as explained here :
https://openfoam.org/download/source...ling-openfoam/

But I have the following error when I run Allwmake:
./Allwmake: 7: .: Can't open /wmake/scripts/AllwmakeParseArguments

I checked my environment variables but I don't see any mistake.
I'm pretty sure that the problem comes from the variable $WM_PROJECT_DIR, when I replace this in Allwmake by the true path the error disappears but I obtain a new one :
/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x$ sudo ./Allwmake
./Allwmake: 9: ./Allwmake: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Allwmake error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.

And when I check with echo :

echo $WM_PROJECT_DIR
/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x

Any idea how to solve this problem?

Thank you !

Hi,

sudo creates new environment, so in sudo shell WM_PROJECT_DIR is empty. So either use -E flag for sudo, or execute bash under sudo and there source etc/bashrc, compile software, etc.

Thank you for your response.

I did not know root created an environment. So, I used the -E flag and the error well disappeared however I have a new one, and still with the value of $WM_PROJECT_DIR :

./Allwmake: 9: ./Allwmake: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Allwmake error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.

I don't understand why the variable is ok for the first occurence in Allwmake but not for the second path.
How can i check the value of $WM_PROJECT_DIR in the sudo shell?

New error seems to be exactly the same as in your first message.

It depends on configuration, on my laptop, for example, sudo preserves environment.

You can check value of environment variable with

Code:
sudo echo $WM_PROJECT_DIR

Yes it's the same error as before when I replaced the path manually. sudo -E has eliminated the first error (line 7 in Allwmake) but doesn't work after, even so "sudo echo $WM_PROJECT_DIR$" return the good path. Maybe the environment is not well preserved with -E flag?

However I've tried to source the bashrc file in root as you mentioned and the compiling started without any problem. I don't have the time to check if it will go all the way right now, but there is a good chance that my problem is solved.

Thank you
