Sorry, 1.5.1 is more my term than their's, a better term would be =
1.5-CURRENT. Yes it from the latest git sources.

BTW thanks for all your work on OpenFOAM and Paraview - without it I =
not have known where to start.

I recall seeing the mgridgen.h issue at some point, but presently I am =
using the native openmpi port - the metis and gridgen components I am =
are from the OpenFOAM ThirdParty tarball, which probably avoids that =

This is very interesting. I tried to upgrade OpenFoam to the latest 1.5 =
the offcial tarball, but did'nt succeed: it seems that some files (e.g.
mgridgen.h are mising)!

I don't find 1.5.1 on their site; is it available only from git, or is =
a tarball available?

Best regards,
Th. Thomas.
