Question OpenFOAM in parallel

Hello all,

First, I should start by saying that I am fairly new to CFD and OpenFOAM.
I'm trying to run OF in parallel but I am getting the following error (see below). When I try to run a simulation in serial it works fine, but doing it in parallel is causing problems. I've been waiting for the 'computer guy' to address the issue but he seems to be unable to fix it so I have turned to you.
Are there any pointers you can offer to solve the issue?

Thanks ahead of time!


Sorry! You were supposed to get help about:
But I couldn't open the help file:
/opt/local/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/openmpi-1.6.3/share/openmpi/help-opal-runtime.txt: No such file or directory. Sorry!

Hi Charles

If your are using a system install of openmpi and not the thirdparty installation, maybe check that in OpenFOAM-2.2.0/etc/bashrc the following is set

Hope it helps.
