Dear OpenFOAMers,

I am wondering if anyone posted steps on how to compile OpenFOAM v5 source codes on UBuntu 1706?

I tried to following the steps for OpenFOAM v4.1 on Ubuntu 1606, but, the steps did not work for v5 on Ubuntu 1706.

Thanks!

Pei

Quick answer: The official installation instructions are provided here: https://openfoam.org/download/5-0-source/
They don't provide step-by-step instructions as detailed as the ones at openfoamwiki.net, but if people don't complain about the official ones, then the current format will stay as-is.

As for the ones that are provided at openfoamwiki.net, I haven't had the time+patience to write and test the installation of OpenFOAM 5.0. However, I have revised and updated the ones for OpenFOAM-dev here: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...OAM-dev/Ubuntu

Although I haven't tried using Ubuntu 17.04 yet... and there are a few bugs in how makeParaView works on the "ThirdParty-5.0" package, which should use instead the one from "ThirdParty-5.x". I will try to look into this during this weekend.

Thanks a lot Bruno!

I will give the OpenFOAM-dev installation a try.

where should we post suggestion that a step-by-step instructions be provided? I think it is worth it to provide step-by-step instructions for people who are not experts in both linux and OpenFOAM.

Hi Pei,

For the distributions done by the OpenFOAM Foundation, you can report this on their bug tracker: https://bugs.openfoam.org

I do strongly suggest that you make a strong case on what specific improvements should be done to the instructions on the OpenFOAM Foundation website. Simply stating "we need official step-by-step instructions" will likely be disregarded.


As for the distributions done by ESI-OpenCFD, you can report this on their issue tracker: https://develop.openfoam.com/Develop...AM-plus/issues

The same protocol still applies, namely that a strong case should be made regarding the need to have step-by-step instructions.

Best regards,
Bruno
