When I open paraFoam, the only 'Volume Fields' I have a choice to load are those that are in the '0' time directory.

For example, when I run the 'hole in plate' tutorial, the only 'volume fields' I can load are 'U' and 'T', even though the other time directories have sigma etc in them.

Does anyone know why this is the case?

I just installed OF-1.5 and recompiled paraView and OF.
I am using OpenSUSE 11.0.

I realised that if I copy the results from one of the other time directories into the '0' time directories then I have a choice to load them in paraFoam, and paraFoam will load all the other time directories correctly.

Any ideas are welcome,
Philip C
