Default I recently installed OpenFoam
Posts: n/a
I recently installed OpenFoam on a Rocks 5.0 cluster (RHEL 5.0 / Centos 5.0). I had all sorts of issues with gcc and paraview ... here is how I overcame them:

yum install gmp-devel.x86_64

Download and manually install mpfr-2.3.1.gz (No package available for centos 5?)
Add mpfr dir to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in ~/.bashrc e.g.

Download and manually install qt435 (Centos 5 qt package is too old e.g. 4.2.x)

Backup buildParaViewFunctions and insert:
Build Paraview 3.3 and the PV3FoamReader module

Default This is what my ~/.bashrc look
Posts: n/a
This is what my ~/.bashrc looked like eventually:

# for mpfr
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

# change default OpenFoam directory
export FOAM_INST_DIR=/share/apps/OpenFOAM
[ -f $foamDotFile ] && . $foamDotFile

# set OpenFoam environment variables
. $FOAM_INST_DIR/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/bashrc

# set QT related variables
export PATH=$QT/bin:$PATH
