Can't mpirun anymore?
Hi everyone,

i used to run OpenFOAM cases on 4 cores with mpirun.
For example after deconstructing: mpirun -np 4 interFoam -parallel
Since I installed the new Kubuntu 11.10 i get this error message:
Mpirun aborted blabla
couldn't find executable InterFoam

What does that mean?
I found one thread and he solved the problem by adding a line to the bashrc, but i had this line allready in it (it was source /opt/.. like in the manual for the Foam installation)

Any tips?

Greetings Leech,

Try running it this way instead:

foamJob -s -p interFoam
The foamJob script should handle the missing details in activating the OpenFOAM environment on each remote process.

Best regards,
