Hi All,

I'm new with OpenFoam and I'm struggling to run compressible flow in Parallel mode in the environment of Centos 6.5.

I'm trying to run tutorial case:
using 8 core and I keep getting error message. If I run using 1 core, I dont get the error message. The error message only happens with multiple cores even with just 2 core.

I thought I would be due to the MPI but when I run other tutorial case with incompressible flow, I can make it with multiple cores. Example:
For motoroBike case, I can run it with 6 cores.

Here is the error message (some parts of the error message in the log file) that I got when I tried to run compressible flow:

-- - -- - -
[0] Cannot find patchField entry for procBoundary0to1
[0] file: /home/ccfd/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.2/tutorials/compressible/rhoSimplecFoam/squareBen
d/processor0/0/p.boundaryField from line 25 to line 38.
[0] From function GeometricField<Type, PatchField, GeoMesh>::GeometricBoundaryField::rea
dField(const DimensionedField<Type, GeoMesh>&, const dictionary&)

ield.C at line 206.
FOAM parallel run exiting
[1] Cannot find patchField entry for procBoundary1to0
-- - - - - - - -

and Here is the Allrun file that I used to run it:

cd ${0%/*} || exit 1 # run from this directory
# Source tutorial run functions
. $WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/tools/RunFunctions
runApplication blockMesh
runApplication decomposePar -force
#cp -r 0 > /dev/null 2>&1

#- For parallel running
ls -d processor* | xargs -i rm -rf ./{}/0 $1
ls -d processor* | xargs -i cp -r ./{}/0 $1
foamJob -p -s checkMesh -constant -noZero > log.checkMesh
runParallel patchSummary 8


runParallel $(getApplication) 8
runApplication reconstructParMesh -constant
runApplication reconstructPar -latestTime

# ----------------------------------------------------------------- end-of-file

Do I have any installation problem in my server??
Do I have setting problem in my compressible run????

Why do I have problem in running compressible flow but not in incompressible flow????

I would appreciate any help ...

Thank you very much in advance.
