Hello,

if I run wmake libso to compile a turbulencemodel, I get the following message:

mkdir: cannot create directory `linuxGccDPOpt': Permission denied
/bin/sh: cannot create linuxGccDPOpt/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** [linuxGccDPOpt/options] Error 2
/opt/openfoam171/wmake/MakefileFiles:39: linuxGccDPOpt/options: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `linuxGccDPOpt/options'. Stop.
wmake error: file 'Make/linuxGccDPOpt/objectFiles' could not be created

Unfortunately I can't run wmake with sudo either.
It would be great if someone would be able to help,

Thank you
Hagen

Greetings Hagen and welcome to the forum!

Is it your own modified turbulence model? Or are you modifying the original code?

Because each of these have different ways of handling. For the first method, read: 3.2.4 Compilation example: the pisoFoam application

If it's the second method, it will be a bit tricky:
  1. In the terminal window you have open, change to user root, by running:
    Code:
    su -
    The password it requests is the root's password. If you haven't set one for it yet (i.e., yours doesn't work), run:
    Code:
    sudo passwd
  2. Now run:
    Code:
    . /opt/openfoam171/etc/bashrc
  3. And now you can run "wmake libso" in the desired turbulence model library
Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you for the work around Bruno. Your comments helped me install an OF extension .

I am curious about the code in the second step. As the bashrc file is not an executable, what does the following line do?

Code:
 
. /opt/openfoam171/etc/bashrc

It executes the script /opt/openfoam171/etc/bashrc. The dot is just an alias for the Linux source command.

This also works for OpenFoam 6 for Windows 9 years later. So cheers for the solution!
