grsox is on a distinguished road

I am installing OpenFoam for the first time and when I run paraFoam in the icoFoam/cavity tutorial I get:
$WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/paraview-3.6.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/bin/paraview-real: symbol lookup error: $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/paraview-3.6.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/bin/ undefined symbol: _ZN11QHeaderView5resetEv

I have downloaded and unpacked qt 4.3.5 into the Third Party directory. The provided makeQt build script was used to put it together.

Paraview was then made with
./makeParaView -qmake $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5/bin/qmake

PV3FoamReader is then built as described in the README.

If I ldd several libs in $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/paraview-3.6.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/bin I get several libs not found. For instance ldd returns: => not found => not found => /lib64/ (0x00002aaaaaced000) => /lib64/ (0x00002aaaaaf07000) => /home/grsox/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux64/lib64/ (0x00002aaaab10b000) => /lib64/ (0x00002aaaab418000) => /home/grsox/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux64/lib64/ (0x00002aaaab69b000) => /lib64/ (0x00002aaaab8b3000)

Any idea what I am missing?

I put LD_LIBRARY_PATH in foam..etc/bashrc contain path to qt libs.

And compiled parawiev plugin too (with compiled qt qmake path)

Parawiev starts, but stucs immediatly, consumes 99% cpu but nothing happens.

32bit machine, ubuntu dapper

That may help in your unresolved symbol broblem, but don't solve my broblem..

Paraview freeze problem seems to be graphic card problem. It freeze in matrox G550 machine, but when ssh -X from other machine and run same cavity example it works (but aufull slow). Other machine have nvidia quadro card.

Is there somewhere list of working cards with paraview?

Send a message via ICQ to louisgag
For your info, I solved the "_ZN11QHeaderView5resetEv" problem by setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the lib directory of qt.
