Hello, I ma installing OpenFOAM on a Gentoo machine and can't seem to get the environment variables right. Gentoo is a little different then what is posted in the installation instructions so I created a file called 99OpenFOAM in my /etc/env.d/ directory and ran env-update. In that file I put:

# /etc/env.d/99OpenFOAM


and when I ran 'foamInstallationTest' I get

Executing /programs/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/foamInstallationTest:

Checking basic setup...

FATAL ERROR: OpenFOAM environment not configured.

Please refer to the installation section of the README file:
<OpenFOAM installation dir>/OpenFOAM-1.6/README
to source the OpenFOAM environment.

Has anyone here installed OpenFOAM on a gentoo machine before?
