getBinutils script broken

Seems that the URL is out of date.

?? I seriously need more details... this command worked just fine for me:

wget ""

Hi Bruno,

I'm getting this error, which I think is a proxy issue since I can wget things with http and https addresses:

Resolving failed: Name or service not known. wget: unable to resolve host address `'

Hi Pete,

Ah, that's much better ;)

Please check if you can use the following command (address):

wget -P download

I've been meaning to make this change on all of the scripts, but I can use some more feedback on this, specially when we have your machine as a test subject.

Best regards, Bruno

What if I can't get root?

I'm trying to build OpenFOAM 2.3.x on a RHEL 6 cluster, so I can't perform the steps that need root. Are there instructions anywhere for a workaround?

Then you'll have to compile your own OpenMPI in Thirdparty.

But better: ask your sysadmin nicely whether he can do the first few steps for you. After that you should be fine without root-rights.
