Hi all,
I have a running OF 1.6.x installation on an openSUSE 11.2 OS. (used the Instructions from
However, the chtMultiRegionFoam tutorial case will not run straight from the Allrun file most likely due to the parallel processing (I am running an core i5). When I execute the command ./Allrun everything is executed fine until the solver starts its work. The only timestep directory created is for 0.001s.
I assume that parallel processing is the problem because the case runs fine if I input all commands from Allrun up to the parallel part and then just run it on one core.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
My only idea would be that the critical error I am getting with foamInstallationTest is the problem:

gcc 4.4.1
WARNING: Conflicting installations:
OpenFOAM settings : /bin/gcc
current path : /usr/bin/gcc

On the other hand I don't see why it runs on one core.

Cheers and regards,
