|Priority||low||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003678: no release file for ubuntu 21.04|
|Description||during installation, it says ubuntu 21.04 hirsute doesn't have a release file|
|Additional Information||I was using the official repositories of OpenFOAM-8 at openfoam.org|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Would you like to contribute to OpenFOAM maintenance to cover the cost of creating packs for new releases of Ubuntu as soon as they are released?
||Don't get me wrong. I didn't know about that release thing. but at least when can I expect a release for it|
||Can you provide funding to support OpenFOAM releases for Ubuntu?|
||I am 18 yrs old college student & that is not possible for me. but previous versions of ubuntu have release files. I want to use it for my college project, please can u do something|
You can see the supported releases of Ubuntu here:
As you may notice, OpenFOAM is mainly provided for LTS-Versions of Ubuntu (don't pay attention to 19.10. release).
Always provide new packages for OpenFOAM for every new non-LTS release is in fact not worthwhile because the time of support for such releases is something about nine month. Also there is always a new release every six month of Ubuntu.
So you see, it's much more affordable to develop and provide packages for OpenFOAM only for LTS-releases which are supported for five years (up to nine years).
I suggest you to make your calculations on an LTS-Release of Ubuntu, e.g. 20.04.
correct me please if I told something wrong here, just wanted to help out a bit.
is there any way of using 20.04 OpenFOAM pkg in 21.04?
also, I downloaded OpenFOAM binaries from ubuntu official repositories but error occurs
******@*******:~$ simpleFoam -help
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR :

OpenFOAM v8 and dev packaged for Ubuntu 21.04:
