Hello folks,

I have only been a passive user (read unregistered) so far since never had to work in CFD in detail. However, now am starting to work on OpenFOAM for my project and I need a specific version of that to run along with the latest 5.0 build.

I have a Ubuntu 16.04 system. I already have installed OpenFOAM 5.0 and it resides in /opt/openfoam5 folder (and it's working fine). I now need to work on a specific feature using OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF (https://github.com/MicroNanoFlows/Op...ee/devel-craig) which am trying to install from ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF folder along with the unzipped Third Party folder in the same location (-MNF suffix added as instructed)

Attempt #1
(Trying to install from readme of devel-craig repository)

After some ups and downs I managed to get on the right track and created correct aliases for 5.0 and 2.4.0 in the ~/bashrc file and then moved on to compiling the 2.4.0 version.
I ran into following messages when I ran ./Allwmake from the ThirdParty folder
Code:
========================================
    Done ThirdParty Allwmake
========================================
However, when I ran /.makeParaView4 next, it displayed some errors (at 13%) and but finished the output with following message.
Code:
Installation complete for paraview-4.1.0
        Set environment variables:
    ...
    ...
    Done
I have attached a screenshot of this.

Post this issue, I followed the advice here (Paraview not found when installing OpenFoam to Ubuntu 14.04) by @wyldckat . But same thing repeated.
The same error has repeated many times even before it stopped at (what I thought was) 13%.
Code:
‘GLsizeiptr’ has not been declared
I went through resources like these:
https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/bl...vironment.html
but to no avail. Then I came across this thread: OpenFOAM 2.4 ParaView 4.1 compilation problem
which leads me to the wiki page for installation:
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_16.04


Attempt #2
(After coming across wiki page about installation of 2.4.0 on Ubuntu 16.04)

So I decided to do a fresh install of OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF.
I deleted folders in the OpenFOAM directory and I followed these instructions step-by-step:
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Installation/Linux/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/Ubuntu#Ubuntu_16.04

This is what I get

Code:
ywb17176@mae-hen-8163-db:~/OpenFOAM$ ln -s /usr/bin/mpicc.openmpi OpenFOAM-2.4.0/bin/mpicc
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'OpenFOAM-2.4.0/bin/mpicc': No such file or directory
I continue nonetheless.

Code:
ywb17176@mae-hen-8163-db:~/OpenFOAM$ sed -i -e 's/^\(cgal_version=\).*/\1cgal-system/' OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/CGAL.sh
sed: can't read OpenFOAM-2.4.0/etc/config/CGAL.sh: No such file or directory
I continue nonetheless.
Code:
ywb17176@mae-hen-8163-db:~/OpenFOAM$ source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/etc/bashrc WM_NCOMPPROCS=8
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamEtcFile: No such file or directory

bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/etc/config/aliases.sh: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamEtcFile: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamEtcFile: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamEtcFile: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamEtcFile: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/OpenFOAM-2.4.0-MNF/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or  directory
I have no idea why it would try to go to /opt ! That's where my 5.0 is installed. I add the line export WM_NCOMPPROCS=8 to my ~/.bashrc at the end and comment out the sourcing of openFoam 5.0, creating another alias statement for the same.
I continue with the next steps in the same terminal.

I open a new terminal, run of240.
At the end of output of step #10.3
Code:
./makeParaView4 -python -mpi -python-lib  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so.1.0 > log.makePV  2>&1
Code:

Corresponding log.makePV file is attached. Continuing with the next step.

Update:

I think I was not typing in some of the commands the right way. I tried again, and now both the logs log.makePV and log.make do not show any errors. So it seems the installation was fine.

However, if I try to run ParaView just to test, it still is giving me same error for 2.4.0-MNF version.
Code:
of240
paraFoam
Code:
WARN file does not exist:
    ./system/controlDict
    ./system/fvSchemes
    ./system/fvSolution
created temporary 'ywb17176.OpenFOAM'


--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: 
cannot find file

file: /home/ywb17176/system/controlDict at line 0.

    From function regIOobject::readStream()
    in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 73.

FOAM exiting
See the difference when I run paraFoam for 5.0 version: in a new terminal:
Code:
of500
paraFoam
Code:
WARN file does not exist:
    ./system/controlDict
    ./system/fvSchemes
    ./system/fvSolution
Cannot locate OpenFOAM-format case files
Would you like to open ParaView anyway <Y|n>
If I enter y, ParaView window opens up.
What is happening ?
Also, are those warnings normal ?

Update:

Issue is now resolved: https://bugs.openfoam.org/view.php?id=2738

It is not a bug and just a difference between how the two versions treat ParaView.

Please close this thread or declared as "Solved"
