Default binutils-devel problem with Openfoam

Hi foamers,

As I was trying to recompile a solver, I got the problem saying:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find "-liberty"

so I read in some posts that I needed to install binutils-devel (I had already installed openfoam, was just trying to recompile). Well, big mistake, I did yum install binutils-devel.x86_64 (under centos), and now nothing seems to compile til the end. So everything goes right, but stops without any further message, it looks something like this:

Making dependency list for source file albertoMoveDyMEngineMesh.C

well it stops there. So if I try to use the program, it will execute, but will also quit without any message. Any ideas as what went wrong and how I can correct this? I would appreciate it

best regards,

Hi Abm,

You could have posted this thread on the Installation section of the forum It would have been easier for people to spot it.

I believe that this has already occurred to some OpenFOAM users in CentOS and RHEL. Basically it's a problem of having an up-to-date gcc 4.4, but with an outdated binutils package. Basically you will need the respective binutils package version... possibly 2.20 or above... but which I have no clue where it might be in CentOS yum package system

Personally, when the system's "gcc + binutils" fail me, I resort to my blog post: Automated scripts for building gcc 4.4.x and 4.5.x for using with OpenFOAM 1.7 series
But I haven't tested it with 1.6-ext.

Best regards and good luck!
