Hello All,

I'm opening this thread as a last resort to solve the issue with potentialFoam with 2006 and 2012 versions.

I have to openfoam versions, both installed correctly with allias in bashrc so on.

Regarding Potential Flow problems, I try to solve Cylinder and pitzdaily tutorails but I got the similar problem that have no solution. (Meshing is good but no 1 file)

When I look at log.potentialFoam what I see is (I change directory with b.... so it is good)


Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

potentialFlow: Operating solver in PISO mode

Reading velocity field U

Constructing pressure field p

Constructing velocity potential field Phi

No MRF models present

Calculating potential flow
Using dynamicCode for functionObject error at line 52 in "/home/b...../cylinder/system/controlDict.functions.error"
Could not load "/home/b....../cylinder/dynamicCode/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/"
/home/b..../cylinder/dynamicCode/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Creating new library in "dynamicCode/error/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/"

as this problem occurs in both versions, I strongly believe it is my system that cause the issue, but I couldn't find a fix.

If you have any idea about the origin of the flaw and possible fix, thanks in advance
