Hi, I am using Redhat linux,
I am using Redhat linux, I have installed openfoam and tested it and it seems though it is running the cavity test case.
I have also installed Qt and test it as below:
qmake --version
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.5 in /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.3.5/lib

however when I run buildParaView3.3-cvs in ThirdParty directory I am getting this error:

The problem is the MPFR and GMP are not installed. My suggestion, install these two packages and then reinstall OF-1.5.
Refer to this post:

good luck
