Hi,

I've been trying to install OpenFOAM 3.0.1 in Ubuntu 18.04 with no success... Unfortunately, there are still no instructions in openfoamwiki.net.

This is from the $WM_PROJECT_DIR/Allwmake log when attempting installing through the official instructions at https://openfoam.org/download/3-0-1-source/

Code:
ensight/part/ensightPart.C: In member function ‘bool Foam::ensightPart::isFieldDefined(const Foam::List<double>&) const’:
ensight/part/ensightPart.C:54:39: error: ‘isnan’ was not declared in this scope
             if (id >= field.size() || isnan(field[id]))
                                       ^~~~~
ensight/part/ensightPart.C:54:39: note: suggested alternative:
In file included from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/doubleFloat.H:32:0,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/floatScalar.H:38,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/scalar.H:39,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/IOstream.H:49,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/Ostream.H:39,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/OSstream.H:39,
                 from /opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/OFstream.H:38,
                 from lnInclude/ensightFile.H:36,
                 from ensight/part/ensightPart.H:40,
                 from ensight/part/ensightPart.C:26:
/usr/include/c++/7/cmath:639:5: note:   ‘std::isnan’
     isnan(_Tp __x)
     ^~~~~
/opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/wmake/rules/General/transform:8: recipe for target '/opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/conversion/ensight/part/ensightPart.o' failed
make: *** [/opt/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/conversion/ensight/part/ensightPart.o] Error 1
When following the wiki instructions for Ubuntu 16.04 at https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...M-3.0.1/Ubuntu the same error occurs in the same line, and also twice in the file ensight/part/ensightPartIO.C

The wiki instructs running $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/makeParaView4 before $WM_PROJECT_DIR/Allwmake. This also results in a compilation error

Code:
CMake Error at VTK/CMake/vtkCompilerExtras.cmake:47 (if):
  if given arguments:

    "gcc: error: ARGS: Ficheiro ou directoria inexistente
The last line says "ARGS: File or directory does not exist" in Portuguese.

I've also tried to follow some of the instructions for compiling OpenFOAM 2.3.1 for Ubuntu 18.04 at https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_18.04 for example changing the compiler to g++5, but it didn't have any success either.

Thank you in advance for any help provided

The OpenFOAM version that you are trying to use is several years old and some of it will simply not compile with newer compilers. I'd suggest that you obtain a new version. OpenFOAM-v1812 is coming out today. The website (www.openfoam.com) is still being updated, but the source files are already available
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ope...s/files/v1812/

One of my coworkers compiled it from source on ubuntu 18.04 yesterday and had no issues.


Cheers,

I already use several versions of OpenFOAM for different projects who make use of custom code written for different versions. Right now, I need to use OpenFOAM 3.0.1.

It should be possible to compile since OpenFOAM 2.3.1, which is older, apparently can be compiled in Ubuntu 18.04 (I haven't tried it yet though)

Greetings to all!

@jlr: I've now finished writing and testing the instructions for building OpenFOAM 3.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04, by relying on GCC 5: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_18.04


@Mark: Congrats on the early release of v1812! In order for people to adhere always to the more recent versions, we'll need to make it easier to port their old inherited code to work with the more recent code, so please do keep up with the good work at: https://www.openfoam.com/documentati...rade-guide.php

But they'll also need to confirm if the results are still at least similar to the more recent versions, so we need a way to run tests with the older versions. Hence me having written up instructions for them at openfoamwiki.net along with the requests as they come in. That said, I am thinking of relying on AppImage in the future, but it's sometime away for me to do this...

Best regards,
Bruno
