OpenFOAM-2.0.1 Installation & its dependency resolution
I'm a system admin - trying to install OpenFOAM-2.0.1 on OpenSUSE-11.1 LINUX.
Can someone clear my doubts:
Is it possible to install mpi version of OpenFOAM without Paraview? Or is paraview a must pre-requisite for OpenFOAM?
If Paraview-3.10.1 is installed with binary distribution, then can I continue installing OpenFOAM-2.0.1(mpi version) from source distribution?
ParaView is usually only necessary for post-processing the results. So, it will depend on the usage scenarios:
Do you have any idea which version of Paraview work with OpenFOAM versions?
Mmm, I'm having some trouble trying to understand what you are trying to achieve... mainly because it's been a long week for me :)
AFAIK, the standard ParaView 3.10.1 can open simulation cases of OpenFOAM up to 1.7.x. ParaView 3.11 or 3.12 might open cases from 2.0 without any problems, or so I hope.
Either way, it's not very difficult to build ParaView 3.10.1 from source! You can follow these instructions to install it: Building ParaView 3.10.1 with custom Qt 4.6.4
If you need to install ParaView with Python and MPI as well, run:
