How to best create a new case?
How to best create a new case? I created a new case using FoamX by right-clicking on $FOAM_RUN/sonicFoam and creating new case. In the lower window, I get:

Case /home/john/OpenFOAM/john-1.1/run/tutorials/sonicFoam/cube saved successfully to time 0

When I look into $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/sonicFoam, however, the directory has not been created. Not sure how to correct this. If it means anything, I'm running on FC3 x86_64 but not with the AMDx86_64 OpenFOAM... I had difficulty getting the latter to testInstallation properly.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Are /home/john/OpenFOAM/john-1
Are /home/john/OpenFOAM/john-1.1/run/tutorials/sonicFoam/cube and $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/sonicFoam exactly the same directory?

Does 'FoamXCaseServer' get started with the '-create' option? I get something like

FoamXCaseServer /home/pinky2/mattijs/OpenFOAM/mattijs-1.1/run/rhoSonicFoam junk -create rhoSonicFoam

You're right... I had "misplaced" the new cases by looking for them by typing 'tut' at the command line, which took me somewhere else. Sorry for that.
