Hi folks!
I had some help some time ago with installing OpenFoam on Ubuntu Karmic Koala....here.. We got it working and my customer was happy... Unfortunately, his computer was hit by a storm we have built him a new one, but with the old drive and I could fix Ubuntu...Karmic Koala hasn't any support now and I tried the upgrade to Lucid Lynx 10.04.3... The upgrade went well, so I tested OpenFoam and it came up error: Code:
ruben@rubendesktop:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6.x/bin$ ./foamInstallationTest Executing ./foamInstallationTest: Checking basic setup...

The one thing I do remember.....is the service here is brilliant! Give me work to do ..... Thanks as always! bookie56

Hi bookie56!
It has already been this long ago!? OK, as for the error message: Quote:
It will only be necessary to rebuild everything only if your customer needs to build his own solvers/utilities for OpenFOAM. Otherwise, it's ready to run as it is! Or at least it should be... Upgrading the OpenFOAM version will depend on his usage of OpenFOAM itself. Currently he has two upgrade options:
As for the hardwarewise issue, although you didn't request anything suggestions, here are a few that you and/or your customer might want to consider:
And if you think that this much backup can be redundant, some people have now resorted to also having a spare laptop, because wasting 1 work day in the repair shop is not acceptable! Best regards, Bruno

Hi wyldckat!
Time flies doesn't it.....LOL! Thanks for a great and prompt reply... The backup side of things is something I keep on nagging my customers about.....some listen .....some don't... I don't think my customer was worried about any cases, because he had a go at reinstalling his cumputer after a crash a while back (didn't mention to me) and basically cocked things up....But when he finally had major problems after the storm...he came to me I was pleasantly surprised to find Ubuntu intact, but he had already said to reinstall everything if needed.... I see OpenFOAM has changed a lot....not saying that I have a clue about anything to do with it.......LOL At the moment it might be an idea to stay with the 10.04 LTS until they release a newer version..... I can check with him about the cases....to make sure if there is anything left he is worried about..... If he says go ahead and upgrade to latest version  can you help me with that? Is it easy to remove old version or upgrade...don't mind reinstalling Ubuntu....he is on holiday about another couple of weeks, so I have a little time to fix things... Let me know your opinion... Thanks again! bookie56

Hi bookie56,
OpenFOAM has indeed evolved and now also comes in a neat "turn key" optional installation mode: http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubuntu.php  it's not a perfect solution, but it's certainly very convenient to simply add the repo and "aptget install" it Installing from git has also become more simple to do manually, simply by following every single step from here: http://www.openfoam.com/download/git.php The previous versions at still conveniently available as well here: http://www.openfoam.com/download/archive.php  1.7.0 and 1.7.1 are also available with .deb packages Ah, something that they only explain partially  for builds to be done faster with multicore, run this before Allwmake: Code:
export WM_NCOMPPROCS=8 And best of all, no need to reinstall things from scratch again, because multiple OpenFOAM versions can easily coexist in the same machine. Simply use something like this in ~/.bashrc: Code:
#. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6.x/etc/bashrc #< remove this line! alias of16x='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6.x/etc/bashrc' alias of171='. /opt/openfoam171/etc/bashrc' alias of17x='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.7.x/etc/bashrc' alias of20x='. $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM2.0.x/etc/bashrc' alias of201='. /opt/openfoam201/etc/bashrc' One thing to keep in mind: it's not advisable to run more than one of these aliases in the same terminal, because doing so will make a hybrid environment which may result in strange results. AFAIK this problem no longer occurs with 2.0.0 and above, but it was something that did not work all that well in previous versions. So when in doubt, start a new terminal and activate the desired environment. Last but not least, it's also possible to only use one ParaView version for all OpenFOAM version installations, preferably the latest one. All it's necessary is to do a little hacking to the "etc/apps/paraview3/bashrc" for OpenFOAM versions below 2.0.0 and "etc/config/paraview.sh" for 2.0.0 and above. Such hacking is explained here: http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/blo...openfoam.html  you can try either the official binary build from www.paraview.org, or use the latest paraview3101 deb package from openfoam.com. If push comes to shove and something is not right with the available prebuilt versions of ParaView, you can also follow these instructions: http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/blo...qt464.html Any questions/problems, just ask Best regards, Bruno

Hi wyldckat!
Thought I'd give you an update on the situation.... OK! I reinstalled to the latest version of Ubuntu 11.04 and update things etc... I looked at your last post and followd the first part: Quote:
I couldn't see any fault in the installation...just that a window popped up and asked me to report it..... After following the instructions below: Quote:
If I am not totally gagah  it looks like things are OK? Is there anything else you think I should do to test this installation? Thanks again! bookie56
