gcc 4.0.3

current path : /usr/bin/gcc

gzip 1.3.5 /bin/gzip
tar 1.15.1 /bin/tar

villet is on a distinguished road
The bash script shouldn't tell you to use the system compiler unless you have modified the scripts. Have you made any other modifications than changing "WM_COMPILER_INST" to "system"? Can you run "icoFoam" without any problems?

I would recommend using the c++ compiler provided in the OpenFOAM package. That's if you plan to make any mofications.
