Summary0000770: SCOTCH does not build out of the box
DescriptionThe source code for scotch is provided as a compressed archive and not extracted automatically, which leads to a compilation error when ./Allwmake is run in the top OpenFOAM-2.2.x directory.

A similar problem is encountered when running makeParaview, if the source code has not been extracted by hand.

Yep, the ThirdParty package carries the 3 big tarballs inside it. The advantage is that it doesn't unpack ~20000 files in a single go... problem is that this is the first time it happens... at least when thinking back to OpenFOAM 1.6?


A quick fix now would be to provide additional instructions in the "unpacking sources" section, such as:

    tar xzf OpenFOAM-2.2.0.tgz
    tar xzf ThirdParty-2.2.0.tgz

 If you choose to do custom builds of OpenFOAM's default ThirdParty packages of Open-MPI and Scotch:

    cd ThirdParty-2.2.0
    tar xjf openmpi-1.6.3.tar.bz2
    tar xzf scotch_6.0.0.tar.gz



Then later on, before makeParaView:

    cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    tar xzf ParaView-3.12.0.gtgz
    ./makeParaView

and similar for Fedora:

    cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    tar xzf ParaView-3.12.0.gtgz
    ./makeParaView -qmake $(which qmake-qt4)

Thanks for the report - the ThirdParty source pack and associated md5sum have been updated
