Summary0002372: paraFoam -block cannot load blockmesh plugin due to internal crash
DescriptionWhen running "paraFoam -block" there is an error when loading the required plugin:

    ERROR: In /home/openfoam/OpenFOAM/ParaView-5.0.1/ParaViewCore/ClientServerCore/Core/vtkPVPluginLoader.cxx, line 397
    vtkPVPluginLoader (0x1511ed0): /opt/openfoam-dev/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZTIN4Foam5token8compoundE
    Failed to load data file: blockmeshscript-testcase.blockMesh

Additionally, ParaView opens a dialog asking for a reader ("A reader for [...]/blockmeshscript-testcase.blockMesh" could not be found. Pease choose one:"). When canceling this dialog, ParaView hasn't loaded anything.
Steps To ReproduceOpenFOAM-dev is installed by the apt repository as documented here:


  paraFoam -block

in a OpenFOAM case directory for a case which uses blockMesh (system/blockMeshDict)
TagsNo tags attached.

apt-get upgraded now to openfoam 20161205. Problem still occurs.

The problem is that the core OpenFOAM library, is not getting linked to Reordering the link libraries so that OpenFOAM comes last in PVblockMeshReader/PVblockMeshReader/CMakeLists.txt seems to fix the problem.


I will get this change pushed into OpenFOAM-dev and will build the openfoam-dev pack shortly.
