The New Scientist article just whent live, not sure if its a world first, and they gloss over some of the problems we had but hey 🙂
Unfortunately WordPress wont embed the video properly, so just click here.
I have an Ansys workbench script that:
- generates geometry
- performs meshing
- runs fluent (CFD)
To get this to work on Ubuntu (not an officially supported distro) I had to:
- Manually enter the glibc version instead of the rpm command used in the script /usr/local/ansys_inc/v130/aisol/mw/setup-mwuser (just search for rpm). This fixes: /usr/local/ansys_inc/v130/aisol/mw/setup-mwuser: 149: rpm: not found
- However, this still leaves the following error: ServiceMain failed with 1702 (000006a6) The binding handle is invalid.
- This is solved by editing /etc/hosts and commenting out the following two lines (lines 3 and 4 in my file):
::1 UOS-200630 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
- This then leaves the following errors related to the proprietary nvidia driver
Unable to resolve function glXQueryExtension
Unable to resolve function glXMakeCurrent
- This is fixed by adding /ansys_inc/v130/Framework/bin/Mesa to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and running runwb2 with the -oglmesa commandline argument
Hope this is useful for somebody.
