Hi FOAMers!

I am trying to recompile a solver in OF6 on Ubuntu 18.04, specifically interFoam.C. This file is located here: /opt/openfoam6/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam

Now after editing I execute "wclean" and have no issues. When I execute "wmake" I get the error
Code:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications’: Permission denied
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam/options'.  Stop.
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam/options', needed by 'all'.  Stop.
wmake error: file '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam/sourceFiles' could not be created in /opt/openfoam6/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam
If I run as root, the command is not found. Any idea what is happening? And if I go to /opt/openfoam6 and execute ./Allmake I get the error

Code:
Allwmake /opt/openfoam6
make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.
Allwmake: no ThirdParty directory found - skipping
Allwmake src
no git description found
Allwmake src/Pstream
wmake dummy

Hello!

You need to change the premission to be able to add/modifi files in the folder.

The most easy but "dirty" way is to change the permission for the whole folder

- Go to root folder

- Type: sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/openfoam6/

- Give the password

- If that did not works then try:

sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/

Regards

Peter

Two questions: what is the root folder? Would that be /opt/openfoam6?

Also, in opt/openfoam6 when I run ./Allmake I get the error

Code:
Allwmake /opt/openfoam6
make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.
Allwmake: no ThirdParty directory found - skipping
Allwmake src
no git description found
Allwmake src/Pstream
wmake dummy
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src’: Permission denied
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/Pstream/dummy/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/Pstream/dummy/options'.  Stop.

make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/Pstream/dummy/options', needed by 'all'.  Stop.
wmake error: file '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/src/Pstream/dummy/sourceFiles' could not be created in /opt/openfoam6/src/Pstream/dummy
Is there a way I can fix this or should I uninstall-reinstall OpenFOAM? Given the Coronavirus I have very slow internet and would prefer not to reinstall if you know a way to fix the issue?

Go to /opt

Type: cd ..

You are now in root!

Hey Peter

I copied /opt/openfoam6/applications/solvers/multiphase/interFoam and called it bfInterFoam. Then I edited bfInterFoam/Make/files to match the name bfInterFoam.

From here, I went into /opt/openfoam6/applications/solvers/multiphase/bfInterFoam and executed wclean (no errors) and then wmake, to which I get
Code:
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/bfInterFoam/bfInterFoam.C.dep', needed by '/opt/openfoam6/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/bfInterFoam/bfInterFoam.o'.  Stop.
I executed both commands you recommended but I still get this error. Any idea?

EDIT: nevermind, the error was I forgot to change the name of the .C file. can't believe this!

Hallo!

The best road map für doing this is to follow the tutorial:

https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/H...ure_to_icoFoam

I can not answer the question directly, cause it is a while since I made thoe changes...

Regards

Peter

I had a similar issue some time ago, I was compiling a new solver and it just didn't work, but after changing:

EXE = $(FOAM_APPBIN)/interFoam

by

EXE = $(FOAM_USER_APPBIN)/interFoam

it worked. Just go to your Make folder and change it in the file "files".

Hope it works!

Thanks for the reply! I think I should have made my edit bigger, but the issue was the .C was not capitalized
