Description: If you want to

If you want to decouple gcc installation/upgrade from OpenFOAM and choose to set WM_COMPILER from 'Gcc' to '' as recommended in $WM_PROJECT_DIR/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc, when you go to compile everything using:


wmake looks for $WM_PROJECT_DIR/wmake/rules/linux64 thanks to:


in $WM_PROJECT_DIR/wmake/Makefile. $WM_PROJECT_DIR/wmake/rules/linux64Gcc exists, but not linux64.

One fix:

Create a symlink in $WM_PROJECT_DIR/wmake/rules:

ln -s linux64Gcc linux64
