Hello.


I' trying to install foam-extend 4.0 using these instructions.


When I run 'fe40' appears the following:

Warning in ~foam/foam-extend-4.0/etc/config/settings.sh:
MPI_ROOT not a valid mpt installation directory or ending in a '/'.
Please set MPI_ROOT to the mpt installation directory.
MPI_ROOT currently set to ''




I suppose that is because I have installed the intel compiler. Where and what I must to change to compile foam-extend?

H ranrebol,

I am not an experienced use regarding foam-extend.

However, i believe your executable asks for an environment variable set inside your shell/bash.

In case of bash, you could add the following command to your .bashrc file located in your home directory:

Code:
export MPI_ROOT=/path/to/mpiroot
where path/to/mpiroot should contain the executable mpirun in the subdirectory bin - or as absolute path: /path/to/mpiroot/bin/mpirun
At least according to: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/me...riable-mpiroot


Then run: source ~/.bashrc or open a new terminal


To replace /path/to/mpiroot with the correct path you must identify which mpi libraries you have available on your system. Maybe contact your sysadmin, if it applies.


Best regards,
Sebastian

Thanks Sebastian.


It seems that it was only a warning, because until now everything works without problems. But I will do the modification you suggest.
