Building problems with ParaView
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I am out of mind. Too many times I compiled paraview in the ThirdPartys with success but now its not working anymore.

In the attachment is my log file of the building stages (configure / make / make install).


./makeParaView -rebuild -config -gcc > log.BuildParaview 2>&1 &
The only thing what is different is the following line in my bashrc:

source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x/etc/bashrc WM_COMPILER=Gcc47 WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI WM_NCOMPPROCS=8 foamCompiler=ThirdParty
No binaries are build in:

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi Tobi,

Well, knowing which Linux Distribution you are using would help figuring out what might be happening.
But since the makeParaView script is indicating that you are using Qt 4.8.1, then I'm guessing you are using Ubuntu 12.04.
In this case, I suggest that you check these instructions:
More specifically, those instructions indicate that you should build ParaView 3.12.0 with Ubuntu's default GCC version, which for Ubuntu 12.04 is GCC 4.6.3.

You can then create a symbolic link:

ln -s $WM_THIRD_PARTY/platforms/linux64Gcc/paraview-3.12.0 $WM_THIRD_PARTY/platforms/linux64Gcc47/paraview-3.12.0
The other possibility is that the ThirdParty tarball did not unpack correctly.
