Can't run channelFoam!!
when i run a channelFoam ,there was a error

Illegal master cellID 1001. Should be 0..24

file: /home/lequilam/Desktop/testpaallel/GEOM_2954_TestParal/system/fvSolution::PISO from line 71 to line 74.

From function void Foam::setRefCell
const volScalarField&,
const dictionary&,
label& scalar&,
in file cfdTools/general/findRefCell/findRefCell.C at line 65.

can anybody help me to answer that problem?

thank in advance.

Look into the system directory of your case. There should be a dictionary file named fvSolution. Change the pRefCell to a valid value.

nCorrectors 3;
nNonOrthogonalCorrectors 5;
pRefCell 0;
pRefValue 0;

All information you need to avoid or to find this error was written by OpenFoam to your terminal. Please read the output carefully before asking :-D
