I am attempting to install a piece of software and when it is installing (technically compiling) I recieve an error called

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lrandomProcesses

I have looked on the internet and could not find a specific package to install this onto.

Would anyone have an idea on how I can correct the issue?

  • What is the software? it doesn't sound like a system library - possibly a prerequisite that needs to be built first? – steeldriver Aug 11 '16 at 16:13
  • It is openFoam again – philm Aug 11 '16 at 18:02

Try to compile randomProcesses explicitly

 cd src/randomProcesses

I had issues with multiple versions of FFTW library on my computer, but following actions fixed them

  1. In ThirdParty-v1606+/makeFFTW change “fftwPACKAGE=${fftw_version:-fftw-system}” to “fftwPACKAGE=${fftw_version:-fftw-3.3.4}”
  2. Run ./ThirdParty-v1606+/makeFFTW
  3. Proceed with compilation of randomProcesses
