Hello, I succeeded in insta
I succeeded in installing OpenFOAM to a user's directory.
I would prefer to have the installation in an system wide accessible location so that all users on a machine get access to it, for example in /soft/OpenFOAM. Is this possible and what changes, besides changing the installation directory in the bashrc file, are necessary to accomplish this?
Thanks for your input,

Thats it. Just make sure all the users can source the new installation, i.e. the OF directory structure is readable by all or group.

In my experience OpenFOAM tends to run smoothest (no change of scripts etc) when found at $HOME/OpenFOAM/. For a system wide installation I would recommend (at least that's what I did) emulating this behaviour with symbolic links:
* Set-up a site-wide available NFS-Drive /OpenFoam and mount that on all machines
* install the necessary OpenFOAM-versions into that directory (getting something like /OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/)
* to set up a User for OpenFOAM
** create a symbolic link for him (ln -s /OpenFOAM $HOME/OpenFOAM)
** edit his bashrc as described in the README
(of course she can do theses things herself)
I have decided to take this opt-in-route (the User has to be set up if he wants to use OF) because we have other software here some of which for instance don't like the cutting-edge g++ that comes with OF.
(I remember one problem with my setup with FoamX where one dir/file has to be readwritable for everyone otherwise FoamX won't start, but I can't remember exactly how we fixed it, if you run into it I'll be glad to help)
