Hi all,

I am having an installation error with opencarp where when I try to build using cmake I get the following error: 

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Menlo; color: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Menlo; color: #5620f4} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Menlo; color: #000000; min-height: 13.0px} span.s1 {font-variant-ligatures: no-common-ligatures} span.s2 {font-variant-ligatures: no-common-ligatures; color: #000000} span.s3 {font-variant-ligatures: no-common-ligatures; color: #ca3323}

I am running python 3.8 and have also run brew install llvm as well as installed and linked g++. Please let me know if anyone knows how to correct this error.

Your compiler lacks OpenMP support. While OpenMP can be disabled in meshtool, I strongly suggest that you upgrade your compiler to support OpenMP. MacOS is a bit awkward when it comes to OpenMP support, I found the following thread:

Hi Aurel,

I followed the steps in the tutorial, but I am still having the same error. Do you have any other ideas on how to progress?

For me, compiling with -fopenmp works when clang was installed via homebrew.

The best option would be to get openmp support working for your build setup. Other  options are: 1) deaktivating openmp for meshtool in the file meshtool/my_switched.def 2) not building meshtool at all. it is not required for running openCARP experiments.
