Hi everybody,

I recently downloaded a model called BiomassGasificationFoam available at:

I am having some problems when compiling of the side-library called BiomassGasificationMedia. This library has some sub-libraries and once it works fine until a sub-library called solid is run. Here the installation file:


source biomassGasificationMediaDirectories

# If folders already exist a warning message will be showed
mkdir $FOAM_HGS
mkdir $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications

cp -r biomassGasificationFoam $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/
cp -r totalMassBiomassGasificationFoam $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/
cp -r biomassGasificationMedia/porousReactingMedia $FOAM_HGS/
cp -r biomassGasificationMedia/thermophysicalModels $FOAM_HGS/
cp -r biomassGasificationMedia/pyrolysisModels $FOAM_HGS/
cp install $FOAM_HGS/
cp bashrc $FOAM_HGS/

cd $FOAM_HGS/porousReactingMedia
wmake libso

cd $FOAM_HGS/thermophysicalModels

cd $FOAM_HGS/pyrolysisModels
wmake libso

cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/biomassGasificationFoam

cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/totalMassBiomassGasificationFoam
That doesn't have any problem until thermophysicalModels. And here the Allwmake file for that:
cd ${0%/*} || exit 1    # run from this directory
set -x

wmake $makeType solid

wmake $makeType chemistryModel

# Should be combined with solids&solidMixture
wmake $makeType basicSolidThermo
wmake $makeType solidChemistryModel
wmake $makeType radiationModels
When I try to compile solid by:
 wmake libso
The following error appears:

make: *** No rule to make target `reaction/Reactions/solidHeterogeneousReaction/solidHeterogeneousReaction.dep', needed by `Make/linux64GccDPOpt/dependencies'.  Stop.
Readme file has some warnings, that however i respect:
In case of errors:
1.     Make sure the OpenFOAM 2.1.1 is correctly installed,
    by testing one of the tutorial cases provided with OpenFOAM
2.     Open new terminal and again set the nessesary paths:
    source /opt/openfoam211/etc/bashrc 
    source biomassGasificationFoamMediaDirectiories
3.     Check the setting:
    run: icoFoam -help (output should be 'usage info')
    echo $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR (typically /home/user_name/OpenFOAM/user_name-2.1.1
    echo $FOAM_HGS (typically /home/user_name/OpenFOAM/user_name-2.1.1/biomassGasificationMedia)
    echo $LIB_SRC (should be /opt/openfoam211/src)    
    If missing set these variables manually.
4.    Make sure all required packages have been installed by typing:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential flex bison cmake zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev gnuplot libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libxt-dev
5.     Test the ld version: ld -v
    The 'GNU ld' is required. If the 'GNU gold' is installed remove it typing:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge binutils-gold
6.     Run install script: ./install > log_install &
7.    Other possibility: 
    clean up the library settings: unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    and repeat steps 1-3 and 6.
May anyone help me?
Thanks in advanced.

Best regards,

Hello Lorenzo,
I have come across same errors when I installed biomassGasificationFoam from the following link you mentioned ~ compressed file size of 1.3MB.

However, in the link below, the author Kamil Kwiatkowski uploaded the same biomassGasificationFoam module with the file size of 47.13MB ~ fortunately it works well in of211.

Hope it helps. Thank you
