Hi everyone,


I am new to OpenFOAM and am going through the tutorial to learn about CFD



Would anyone be able to advise why I am unable to launch parafoam and open up the parafoam window? Currently I am using Virtual Box to run Ubuntu 16.04. I have checked that I have the latest parafoam, gcc and g++.



I followed the tutorial from the website https://cfd.direct/openfoam/user-guide/v6-cavity/

and encountered the following problem when i run parafoam &


bash-4.2$ paraFoam &
[1] 1135
bash-4.2$ Created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-boon'
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
It looks like opal_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during opal_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems. This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

opal_shmem_base_select failed
--> Returned value -1 instead of OPAL_SUCCESS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is

*** An error occurred in MPI_Init

[8437a05a32ed:1137] Local abort before MPI_INIT completed successfully; not able to aggregate error messages, and not able to guarantee that all other processes were killed!

Below are further information which i think may be useful to identify the problem,


bash-4.2$ which mpirun
/opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-v1806/platforms/linux64Gcc/openmpi-1.10.4/bin/mpirun



bash-4.2$ mpirun --help

I have exactly the same issue, but I do not understand what should I do. Can anybody give me more detailed suggestion?
