1 Introduction

This page is dedicated to explaining how to install the foam-extend project OF Version 30ext.png in Ubuntu.

If you do not yet feel comfortable using Linux, then perhaps you better first read the page Working with the Shell and train a bit with the shell/terminal environments, so you can have a better perception of the steps shown below.


2 Copy-Paste steps

A few notes before you start copy-pasting:

  1. Lines that start with # don't have to be copy-pasted. They are just comments to let you know what's going on.
  2. One wrong character is enough for breaking this guide, so make sure you can read the characters properly or that the installed language system does not break the copied characters!


2.1 Ubuntu 10.04

Here you have at least one choice:


2.2 Ubuntu 12.04

Here you have a few choices:

Discussion thread where you can ask questions about these steps: none so far.

Steps:

  1. Switch to root mode (administrator), to install the necessary packages:
    sudo -s
    • If the 'sudo' command tells you're not in the sudoers list, then run:
      su -
  2. Install the necessary packages:
    apt-get install git flex bison rpm build-essential zlib1g-dev binutils-dev \
    openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev subversion qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev gnuplot \
    libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libxt-dev

    Just in case, make sure to uninstall the "gold" binutils version:

    apt-get remove binutils-gold
  3. Now exit from the root mode:
    exit
  4. Set-up the base folder where foam-extend-3.0 will be installed (here you can copy-paste all in single go):
    cd ~
    mkdir foam
    cd foam
  5. The next command will depend on the repository mirror you want to use:
    • Extend's official repository:
      git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext foam-extend-3.0
    • Extend's official repository (https mode, if you're behind a firewall):
      git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext foam-extend-3.0
    • Mirror at repo.or.cz repository:
      git clone git://repo.or.cz/openfoam-extend-OpenFOAM-1.6-ext.git OpenFOAM-1.6-ext.git foam-extend-3.0
    • Mirror at repo.or.cz repository (http mode, if you're behind a firewall):
      git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/openfoam-extend-OpenFOAM-1.6-ext.git foam-extend-3.0
    • Mirror Unofficial-Extend-Project-Mirror@github repository:
      git clone https://github.com/Unofficial-Extend-Project-Mirror/openfoam-extend-OpenFOAM-1.6-ext.git foam-extend-3.0
  6. After the cloning is complete, go into the cloned folder and switch to the master branch:
    cd foam-extend-3.0
    git checkout master
  7. Configure the preferences file:
    cp etc/prefs.sh-EXAMPLE etc/prefs.sh
     
    #Use the system compiler and configure to use Gcc 4.6
    echo "export WM_COMPILER=Gcc46" >> etc/prefs.sh
     
    # Use the system installation of OpenMPI
    sed -i s/"#export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/"export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/g etc/prefs.sh
    sed -i s/"#export OPENMPI_DIR=path_to_system_installed_openmpi"/"export OPENMPI_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
    sed -i s/"^#export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR"/"export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR"/g etc/prefs.sh
     
    # Use the system installation of Qt
    sed -i s/"#export QT_DIR=path_to_system_installed_qt"/"export QT_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
    sed -i s/"#export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/"export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/g etc/prefs.sh
     
    #here you can change 4 to the number of cores you've got
    echo "export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4" >> etc/prefs.sh
  8. Now to do several more necessary fixes:
    #Create a symbolic link for gmake
    ln -s /usr/bin/make bin/gmake
     
    #disable X dependencies in tecio
    sed -i -e 's=\(U_WIN32\)$=\1 -DENGINE=g' \
     applications/utilities/postProcessing/dataConversion/foamToTecplot360/tecio/tecsrc/Make/tecioOptions
     
    #fix detail in vtkPV4Foam
    sed -i -e 's=-lfiniteVolume=-lfoam -lfiniteVolume=' \
     applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PV4FoamReader/vtkPV4Foam/Make/options
  9. For building 1.6-ext itself, it depends on whether you have installed the i686 or x86_64 architecture of Ubuntu. To check this, run:
    uname -m

    Now, accordingly:

    • For i686:
      echo "export WM_ARCH_OPTION=32" >> etc/prefs.sh
       
      # repair broken template maximum
      sed -i 's/template-depth-40$/template-depth-200/' wmake/rules/linuxGcc46/c++
    • For x86_64:
      # repair broken template maximum
      sed -i 's/template-depth-40$/template-depth-200/' wmake/rules/linux64Gcc46/c++
  10. Activate the environment and save it in the personal .bashrc file:
    source etc/bashrc
     
    echo "alias fe30='source \$HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/etc/bashrc'" >> $HOME/.bashrc
    Note: This last line means that whenever you start a new terminal window or tab, you should run the alias command associated to the foam-extend 3.0 shell environment. In other words, whenever you start a new terminal, you should run:
    fe30
    
    For more information on this topic, read section Using aliases to help manage multiple OpenFOAM versions in the page Installation/Working with the Shell.
  11. Build the several stages of the ThirdParty folder in a single go:
    cd ThirdParty
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 5 to 30 minutes
    ./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
  12. To check if everything went well:
    #Edit the file "log.AllMake" and check if there are any error messages
    #Example:
    gedit log.AllMake
     
    #Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
    #or if you don't understand the output
    #and attach the file "log.AllMake.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
    tar -czf log.AllMake.tar.gz log.AllMake
  13. Now let's build foam-extend-3.0:
    #Go back to the main folder and update the environment
    cd ..
    source etc/bashrc
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
  14. To check if everything went well:
    #Check if icoFoam is working
    icoFoam -help
     
    #Edit the file "make.log" and check if there are any error messages
    #Example:
    gedit make.log
     
    #Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
    #or if you don't understand the output
    #and attach the file "make.log.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
    tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
  15. Now, to build swak4Foam, wait until 0.3.0 is officially released. When it is released, run:
    cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    git pull origin master
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
    ./AllMake.stage5 > log.AllMake.stage5 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./AllMake.stage5 > log.AllMake.stage52 2>&1

    Have a look into the files log.AllMake.stage5 and log.AllMake.stage52 and check if there are any reported errors.

  16. Now you can go read the User Guide, which is located at $HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/doc/Guides-a4/UserGuide.pdf.


Reminder: Whenever you start a new terminal window or tab, you should run the alias command associated to the foam-extend 3.0 shell environment. In other words, run the following command whenever you start a new terminal:
fe30

    cd ThirdParty
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 5 to 30 minutes
    ./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
  12. To check if everything went well:
    #Edit the file "log.AllMake" and check if there are any error messages
    #Example:
    gedit log.AllMake
     
    #Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
    #or if you don't understand the output
    #and attach the file "log.AllMake.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
    tar -czf log.AllMake.tar.gz log.AllMake
  13. Now let's build foam-extend-3.0:
    #Go back to the main folder and update the environment
    cd ..
    source etc/bashrc
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
  14. To check if everything went well:
    #Check if icoFoam is working
    icoFoam -help
     
    #Edit the file "make.log" and check if there are any error messages
    #Example:
    gedit make.log
     
    #Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
    #or if you don't understand the output
    #and attach the file "make.log.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
    tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
  15. Now, to build swak4Foam, wait until 0.3.0 is officially released. When it is released, run:
    cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    git pull origin master
     
    # This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
    ./AllMake.stage5 > log.AllMake.stage5 2>&1
     
    #Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
    ./AllMake.stage5 > log.AllMake.stage52 2>&1

    Have a look into the files log.AllMake.stage5 and log.AllMake.stage52 and check if there are any reported errors.

  16. Now you can go read the User Guide, which is located at $HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/doc/Guides-a4/UserGuide.pdf.


Reminder: Whenever you start a new terminal window or tab, you should run the alias command associated to the foam-extend 3.0 shell environment. In other words, run the following command whenever you start a new terminal:
fe30
