Hi All,

I am having a problem with paraFoam crashing that I am hoping someone can help with. When I try and step through the time steps after on the third one it crashes, even if I start at 4 and go to 5 and then 6. So I don't believe that it is anything to do with any particular time step. I am running it on a virtual machine that subsequently crashes too, so I have limited output from the crash, but the last few lines are as follows:

From function messageStream:perator OSstream&()
in file lnInclude/messageStream.C at line 203.

FOAM aborting

This seems to be very similar to a problem with foamToVTK discussed but not resolved at this thread:

I have watched the system monitor and it doesn't appear to be running out of memory.

I am running OpenFOAM 1.6 on Kubuntu 9.10 and compiled paraFoam on my machine.

Hej there!

I just encountered the same problem with the channelFOAM tutorial (for the first time) using paraview-3.8.0 on ubuntu-10.4. Everything works fine (even jumping to the last frame) but going through the time steps frame by frame makes paraview crash.

Matthew, did you allready fix the problem?
