Installing Tough3 on Windows by using Bash


I am trying to install T3 on my Windows10 by using bash but this error comes up (please see the attached image).

Apparently it's because the file name: " blas2.1.tgz" has been removed or renamed from the website:""

How can I fix this issue?

  • Hi Alborz,

    I was having the same exact issue and a few others after that. I'm installing on a linux box with Ubuntu, but hopefully what I did could help you out. First I downloaded the proper libraries before running ./

    sudo apt-get install liblapack-dev

    sudo apt-get install liblapack3
    sudo apt-get install libblas-dev
    sudo apt-get install libblas3
    sudo apt-get install libopenblas-base

    Then make sure you have Python2.7 installed. I had Python3 and it didn't like that, I found it easiest to just delete Python3 all together then reinstall later.

    I used the following script to run on Ubuntu. This script might work for you or you might have to modify it. But, I hope this helps:

    #! /bin/bash
    # This file is a template for executing
    #   multiple times to build TOUGH3 with various (e.g., all) EOS modules,
    #   from the list  
    #      1 2 3 4 5 7 7c 7ca 7r 8 9 tmvoc ewasg eco2n eco2n_v2 eco2m .
    #   e.g., as ;
    # 1 3 tmvoc
    #   Executed with no argument it prints an example useage.
    #   It may need editting to have correct pathnames for your system.

    if [ "$#" -eq 0 ]; then
       # When called with no argument print usage message;
       echo "Usage: 1 2 3 4 5 7 7c 7ca 7r 8 9 tmvoc ewasg eco2n eco2n_v2 eco2m"
       echo " may be called with any or all of the above arguments."
       for eos in $@      # for each argument (eos number);
    #     This example is for Linux running in Ubuntu;
          ./ \
          --no-x11 \
          --build-type=RELEASE \
          --eos=$eos \
          --use-mpi=0 \
    #      --with-mpiexec \
          --implicit-blaslapack \
          --with-cxx-compiler=g++ \
          --with-c-compiler=gcc \
    #     --prefix=$HOME/tough3-serial
          echo "done with $eos"
    fi  # (end if)
