Hi All,
I am trying to compile solver, but I am getting this error message. Please have a look and advise how to fix it.
Error Message:
make: *** No rule to make target `laplaceFoam.dep', needed by `Make/linuxGccDPOpt/dependencies'. Stop.

maybe a library is not introduced correctly.
Share the solver to check.

check the spelling in you Make/files file. The name given there and the name of the file to be compiled have to match

Also try "wclean" before "wmake"
