[Edit: Solved! It was just my own mistake ... didn't apply the boundary conditions correctly. Sorry! ]

Hi all!

I am using "decomposePar -force" to split my domain up onto eight cores. I used the
tool before (only with a slightly smaller mesh) and everything worked as expected.
Now I increased the size of my domain and I get this (strange) error. It also seems that
no one has had such an error as google can't find anything alike ...


Processor 7
    Number of cells = 124956
    Number of faces shared with processor 3 = 4187
    Number of faces shared with processor 5 = 3272
    Number of faces shared with processor 6 = 2359
    Number of processor patches = 3
    Number of processor faces = 9818
    Number of boundary faces = 5856

Number of processor faces = 37240
Max number of cells = 124956 (0.000400142450712% above average 124955.5)
Max number of processor patches = 7 (47.3684210526% above average 4.75)
Max number of faces between processors = 11196 (20.2577873255% above average 9310)

Time = 8800

Only 0 provided.
Need at least three non-colinear points to be able to interpolate.

    From function pointToPointPlanarInterpolation::calcCoordinateSystem(const pointField&)
    in file triSurface/triSurfaceTools/pointToPointPlanarInterpolation.C at line 57.

My mesh quality has been reported to be Ok (and is of the same quality as my smaller version). The starting time 8800
is intended and all boundary files exist and have the needed patches defined.

Anyone out there who can give me a hint??
