Hello,

I am trying to compile OF 1.7.1 in Kubuntu 11.10 and am getting errors. I am not sure if it is important but I already have OF 2.1.0 installed and working fine.

versions:
g++ (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.1-9ubuntu3) 4.6.1
gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.1-9ubuntu3) 4.6.1
flex 2.5.35


I installed the additional dependencies as suggested above:
Code:
 sudo apt-get install binutils-dev flex bison git-core  build-essential python-dev libreadline5-dev wget zlib1g-dev cmake  libpng12-dev libxt-dev libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev  libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev  libglib2.0-dev freeglut3-dev libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools
The only one that I couldn't install is libreadline5-dev because it is not available in 11.10. However, I do have libreadline-dev installed, I am not sure if this is ok or if libreadline5-dev specifically is needed.

After I run:
Code:
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
The log file looks okay until eventually:
Code:
+ wmake all solvers

And the errors keep going...

Any thoughts?

Greetings Matthew,

Well, OpenFOAM 1.7.1 isn't compatible with Gcc 4.6.1 See here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...tion_.28GCC.29

You can either install Gcc 4.4.x that Ubuntu 11.10 has or make a custom build of Gcc 4.4.x or 4.5.x. For then using Gcc 4.4.x... there are a few explanations: GCC and other compiler issues with OpenFOAM - but the best one might be described here, "On how to use gcc44 in RHEL/CentOS/Rocks": OpenFOAM install on RHEL 5.5

Best regards,
Bruno

I tried to install OpenFOAM-2.4.0 following the instructions of post #4, however I keep getting similar errors:

I am asking is those errors are related to your statements in post #42, gcc version 5.4.0. I have attached the make log to this post.

Thanks in advance for your time.

The errors state that you don't have flex installed. Did you use a system flex or a ThirdParty flex? I don't think that a ThirdParty flex is well tested at all.

I'm not sure about the answer to your question, I get the dependencies as posted in #4 after an initial installation failure following the instructions in OpenFOAM foundation for OpenFOAM-2.4.0 and as you can see it fails again.

I found this tread on this website Problems installing OpenFOAM 2.4.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 and there I found a step by step guide to install OpenFOAM-2.4.0,https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.04 , I run all the steps in that guide and the installation run smoothly. No more errors so far.

Thanks for your answer!

Quite simply that your error shows the following
Code:
undefined reference to `yyFlexLexer::yywrap()'
So either there is something odd with your flex installation or the lexing code in OpenFOAM itself needs some adjustment. Take a look at how the corresponding bit of code looks like in a newer version of OpenFOAM - perhaps some clues there.
Keep in mind that you are trying to compile code that is about 6.5 years old, so the amount of help you can expect will be pretty modest.
