Installation problem on Fedora 10 (OF 1.5)
Hello everyone,

I just started to learn OpenFOAM and tried to install version 1.5 on my laptop which has Fedora 10.

I downloaded all necessary files and unpack them.
And just followed the instructions written in "README".

1. source the etc/bashrc file by adding the following line to the end of my $HOME/.bashrc file:

2. update the environment variables by sourcing the $HOME/.bashrc file by typing in the terminal :

However, only "applications" and "lib" folder were created under <username>-1.5 folder. And there are not any files.

I found no error messages.

When I execute the command "foamInstallationTest", fatal error message was shown.

Anyone have this kind of similar problem?

Thanks in advance:)

All things are OK.

Just read the user manual of OpenFOAM, and follow the tutorials in Chapter 2.
