Hi,

I installed OpenFOAM-2.4 on my workstation a while back and now that I need to use the pimpleFoam solver I've realised that not all solvers and utilities were compiled successfully.

The output of foamSystemCheck is gives me a PASS. After my initial installation the foamInstallationTest provides this output.

Code:
Checking basic setup...

icoFoam  2.4.0     ...M/OpenFOAM-2.4.0/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/bin/icoFoam
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Summary
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Base configuration ok.
Critical systems ok.

Done
The log of my ./Allwmake can be found here.

To shorten things up, I've looked at what the installation tells me it cannot find. I believe these are the ones giving problems in, for instance, the compilation of pimpleFOAM. The output of grep "cannot find" log.make | sort -u is:

Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcoalCombustion
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lconversion
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfieldFunctionObjects
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfvOptions
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llagrangianIntermediate
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llagrangianSpray
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llagrangianTurbulence
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llagrangianTurbulentSubModels
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lsampling
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lutilityFunctionObjects
Any ideas on how to go about solving this issue?

Quick answer: The main problem is that GCC 6 is not supported for OpenFOAM 2.4. You should use GCC 5 instead.

I haven't written/tested instructions for building OpenFOAM 2.4 on the more recent Ubuntu/Debian versions, but you should be able to roughly follow the same instructions provided for OpenFOAM 2.3.1 and Ubuntu 18.04 here: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_18.04 - there you will find step-by-step instructions on how to build with GCC 5. Since it's Ubuntu, it should essentially be the same for Debian.

Hi Bruno,


Thanks for the insight but unluckily this issue is happening on a workstation in my university, so I have no root access. I have tried to install the g++5 compiler locally but it's a damn mess.

Quick answer: I don't have time to go over the steps on how you can build OpenFOAM 2.4.0 with a custom GCC build, so my best suggestion is that you install Debian 9.5 within a virtual machine, build OpenFOAM within it and then transfer the OpenFOAM installation folders into the workstation.

I am having a similar issue where I'm trying to compile OF2.4.0 on Debian 10. The available gcc version is 8.3. AFAIK, the only way to get gcc version 5 is compiling from source. I tried a couple of routes but that seems to be very difficult.

Would it be possible to kindly specify which installation folders to copy over from 9.5 to 10?

Thanks in advance!
