Problem encountered when source .bashrc
Hello, my dear friend, I am pretty new to linux and OpenFOAM, once I unpacked all stuffs, and added to the bottom of ~/.bashrc ". $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/bashrc", I sourced the ~/.bashrc, then it returns something concerning the gcc like below,

Cannot find /home/limiao/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/gcc-4.3.1/platforms/linux installation.
Please install this compiler version or if you wish to use the system compiler,
change the WM_COMPILER_INST setting to 'System' in this file

would it be possible that you guys let me know what this means and what I need to do? Thanks a lot!

CMAKE and GCC missing
in the tar file for the Thirdparty software sources cmake and gcc are not included...

I have had the same problem. I'm trying to install openFoam in fedora 11

you have to download the ThirdParty-packages from both the generals and the second part depending on your machine (32 or 64 bit). they include all files you need for installation of OF.
