numerical simulation software on Linux

Postby morne_j » Thu Aug 04, 2005 4:48 am


Has anyone managed to install a full suite of simulation software on a single linux distribution.Unfortunately I'm a newbie to Linux and the installations have proven to be beyond my capabilities I get one or two to work independently but not all on one distribution.
I'd like to install Salome,
Code-Aster, and
OpenFOAM, But I can't seem to get everything to install correctly. I was using Vector Linux 5.0, and have tried PCLinuxOS (Live CD with Aster). Would anyone be willing to create a Live CD with Salome installed on a distibution that's compatible with the others. Configuring all of the components and installing compatible versions of gcc and python for example has been my biggest headache.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

I'm not familiar with that software or any LiveCDs with it, but I'd try looking at the GIS LiveCDs, as the tend to include a lot of other mathematical/scientific packages along with the GIS stuff. Probably check Quantian first. ... sort=&sm=1

Try CAE Linux:

Based on the open-source CAE softwares Salomé & Code_Aster, you can load STEP / IGES geometry in Salomé and start partitionning and meshing your problem in just 5 minutes.
