Dear Foamer,
I downloaded the software from the website. And followed the readme file to decompress all the files in the folder OpenFOAM and add the line . $HOME/OpenFoam/OpenFoam-1.5/etc/bashrc at the end of the file in the directory of my folder. At first, I just wanted to try the binary version without compilation. So I excute "fomaInstallationTest" to check my installation. And then it said "Base sysmte is ok", "critical system is ok". Then I copy the tutorial and run the three commands to run the cavity example see what happens.
1.first type blockMesh, fine. Mesh generated;
2.Type Icofoma, but with error of convergence times;
3. Then I type paraFoam, wa, a GUI interface appeared, however, it then gave me a warning that " A reader for cavity.openfoam couldn't be found" Then I've to close the window.

I don't what's going and the same problems occur on an Opensuse 11.0.

I'm quite a newbie, can any kind person help me?

For the reader problem, a solution proposed in other posts is to convert the data in VTK format with the instruction foamToVTK and then run paraview in th VTK directory.

You can simply recompile the reader, if you are lucky enough!
Try to go in the OpenFOAM installation directory:

then, call ./Allwmake

and cross your fingers...
