Hi, everybody,

To use the icoFsiFoam, I re-install my OF(1.3).Before the re-installation, everythin is working well. I can launch FoamX, compile solvers and the settings of enviroment variable are correct.

however, after the installtion, I can not set the enviroment variable correct any more, the problems are, when I type "which g++", it shows:

snail@snail-laptop:~$ which g++

but it should show a path to use the gcc/g++ of OF

and when I try to compile a solver, I also run into errors:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -liberty
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [/home/snail/OpenFOAM/snail-1.3/applications/bin/linuxGcc4DPOpt/icoFsiFoam] Error 1

I am pretty sure that the enviroment variable is not set correctly, but I think I have tried many times following the installation step in the wiki, but run into same problems.

Could anybody give me some hints to solve the problems.

Thanks in advance

Hi Niels, Thanks for your r
Hi Niels,

Thanks for your reply!

I think I have solved this problem by re-installing OF-1,3 by the files downloaded from the OF offcial website. the problem is caused by my using of different version of OF-1,3(I was using the one pre-compiled by Pro.Jasak,)

Kind regards
