Hi Zeljko,

everything you want to do with 1.5-dev you should be able to do with 1.6-extend!
As 1.6-extend is the successor of 1.5-dev.

You can have more than one OF-installation on your computer.
Just make your .bashrc "multi-OF-installation-proof"
Your .bashrc should look like
alias startOF16ext='source ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc'
alias startOF171='source "what in the old 171 path was writen" '

by writing in your command-line

you can switch to the OF-installation you want to use. So you have capabilaties like GGI with 1.6-extend and the vanilla OF-1.7.1 as well.

Hi. I have similar problems trying to install OF1.6-ext. After step #3, I get the following error at the tail of the log:

MGridGenGAMGAgglomerate.C:164: error: ‘MGridGen’ was not declared in this scope
make: *** [Make/linuxGccDPOpt/MGridGenGAMGAgglomerate.o] Error 1
+ wmake libso engine
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfiniteVolume
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [/home/santiago/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/lib/linuxGccDPOpt/] Error 1

Any idea of what I need to do? I would appreciate any help. Thanks

I tried to install the openfoam-1.5-dev on ubuntu 10.04 and got the following: file:///C:/Users/Arash/Desktop/OpenFOAM%20on%20Your%20Own%20Laptop.htm

I get the following error after OF15dev:

bash: /home/arash/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/etc/bashrc: line 188: syntax error near unexpected token '<<<'

bash: /home/arash/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/etc/bashrc: line 188:

Greetings Arash,

Find this block of code in the attached file:
<<<<<<< .mine

>>>>>>> .r1000
And replace it with:
This is very strange... which exact instructions are you following? Because the link you gave is pointing into your local copy of the instructions.

Best regards,
