GGI case in 1.6-ext

In 1.6-ext, for a case that works in 1.5-dev, when I use the command 'foamJob -s -p turbDyMFoam', the terminal (OS is Ubuntu 10.04) gives:


Parallel processing using SYSTEMOPENMPI with 4 processors
Executing: mpirun -np 4 /usr/lib/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/bin/foamExec turbDyMFoam -parallel | tee log

Which is all fine and good, but then nothing else happens (where in 1.5 dev I would see continuous reporting on all of the timesteps as the simulation ran). Furthermore I check the CPU usage and all four cores are unoccupied. So I dont really get an error but it is not working properly.

I installed 1.6-ext via:
Under Section 2.3.2.

The only warnings/errors I see when running decomposePar:

Calculating distribution of cells
Selecting decompositionMethod metis
--> FOAM Warning :
    From function min(const UList<Type>&)
    in file /build/buildd/openfoam-1.6-ext-1.6.0/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/FieldFunctions.C at line 342
    empty field, returning zero

And I get the same "error" (the linked thread concludes it is ignorable) when running checkMesh as described here:

Any help greatly appreciated. Shout if anything else is needed.
