Hello there,

I'm trying to install the OF 1806 version on Ubuntu 16.04 and in the middle of the compilling process I'm getting this error:

icoFoam *** not installed ***


Base configuration ok.
The foam installation contains 1 critical error(s).

Review the output for warning messages and consult
the installation guide for troubleshooting.

It seems to be a problem on the Icofoam solver installation. I followed these steps:

Installing these packages:

sudo apt-get install build-essential flex bison cmake zlib1g-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev libopenmpi-dev openmpi-bin gnuplot libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libxt-dev 
sudo apt install qt5-default libqt5x11extras5-dev libqt5help5 qtdeclarative5-dev qttools5-dev libqtwebkit-dev freeglut3-dev libqt5opengl5-dev texinfo 
sudo apt-get install libscotch-dev libcgal-dev
I tried to install it several times, on different versions of Ubuntu (16.04 and 18.04) and different OF versions (v1806, v1706 and OpenFOAM-6) and always getting the same critical error.

This is my first thread here and i'm new to Ubuntu and OF, can anyone help me?

Default Possible Compiler Error??

Can you try a different compiler version? Although you've already tried that with 18.x verses 16.x.

Are you locked into Ubuntu?

Does foamSystemCheck return all fine?

The error message seems to be indicating a possible compiler error rather than an OpenFOAM source error per se.

I'm currently running 1806+ on CentOS 7 no problems. I do compile my own version of GCC (8.1.x series) and MPI (3.1.x series) though rather than the older versions shipped with C7.

See where you go there and I can try a Ubuntu VM and see if I can reproduce.

Hope that helps,

I have ran into that problem. I found it was because I used ./Allmake -j 10 while there are only 4 cores on my laptop. But that might not be in your case.

This is an compiler internal error so the code in the openFoam package should be fine.

1. ./Allmake without specify number of cores.
2. Delete src/regionModels/surfaceFilmModels/submodels/thermo/filmViscosityModel/liquidViscosity/liquidViscosity.o to enforce the compiler to compile that again.
3. If the error is still there, I will try to update the gcc and g++ to the latest version.
4. If the error is there after 1-3, I will reinstall ubuntu.
