Summary0003629: Can not compile a user made solver using wmake
DescriptionI'm trying to edit pimpleFoam application in a specific way that has already been done by a user. Trouble is that steps for compilation where not mentioned by the user and I can not compile myself, I get the following error:

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications’: Permission denied
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam/options'. Stop.
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** No rule to make target '/opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam/options', needed by 'all'. Stop.
wmake error: file '/opt/openfoam8/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam/sourceFiles' could not be created in /opt/openfoam8/applications/solvers/incompressible/EHDpimpleFoam/SRFPimpleFoam

I've seen the thread ( by wyldcat on how to resolve this issue, but this does not seem to fix it for me. Not sure if I'm making a mistake somewhere or if in my case it is not sufficient.

Steps To ReproduceThe EHDpimpleFoam/Make/files is:


        LIB = $(FOAM_USER_LIBBIN)/EHDpimpleFoam

The EHDpimpleFoam/Make/files is of the format:

list of libaries - copied from pimplefoam


list of libraries - copied from pimpleFoam

if I change the first EXE_INC to LIB_EXE I get the same error.

I've edited the MAKE in the SRFPimpleFoam subdirectory of EHDpimpleFoam to be the same.
TagsNo tags attached.
