Cygwin Build for Windows

Cygwin provides a unix-like environment on a Windows machine, and emulates some of the functionality of a linux
distribution. Downloads and more information on Cygwin is available at http://www.cygwin.com/. To compile and run
SU2 in Cygwin on a Windows machine, you will need to con gure Cygwin with the appropriate packages (listed below),
and then continue from within Cygwin as though you were using a linux machine. In summary, the steps are:

1. Download Cygwin installer

2. Install Cygwin, selecting the packages necessary to compile the source code.
3. Download the source code into a directory within cygwin/
4. Install SU2 according to the directions for the linux installation.

Notes on installing Cygwin for rst-time or beginner Cygwin users

It is often recommended to install in a directory rather than the default C:\ location.
The Cygwin shell will only be able to access folders that are within the cygwin\ directory; you will need to install and
run SU2 inside the cygwin directory.

Cygwin packages

At the package selection step, search for the following terms and select the associated packages to install. This list is a
work-in-progress, and further packages may be required or desired.

g++, gcc compiler
python: install the packages under the python sub-heading
cpp: all debug, pre-processor, regular expression packages.

Example SU2 installation on WINDOWS 10 using 64-bit Cygwin

The CYGWIN bash shell is used for all steps on the command line. It is automatically available after the rst installation
step (typically to be launched via the CYGWIN desktop icon).

1. Install CYGWIN (64-bit version) and development packages

Download and run:

setup-x86_64.exe (https://www.cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe)

Inside the Cygwin Setup GUI use C:\cygwin64 for both Root Directory and Local Package Directory . Chose
a Download Site close to you (also http mirrors often work better). Continue to complete the bare minimum
installation. This will end with a desktop icon named Cygwin64 Terminal . Double-click this to open the shell
and launch further commands from there.

For detailed informations on how to install CYGWIN and selected packages see CYGWIN Installation

Install development tools (dependencies on these packages will be automatically selected by CYGWIN)

NOTE: A single command installing all required packages in one is given below this

1. General build environment tools

2. Compilers
3. Python
python3-con gobj
4. OpenMPI
5. Miscellaneous
vim (or any other editor in order to be able to edit les)
wget (to be able to download from the command line)
All-in-one installation of packages (after the initial minimum installation):

NOTE: Prepend path to setup-x86_64.exe (depending where it has been downloaded)

https://su2code.github.io/docs/Cygwin-Build-for-Windows/ 2/4
7/18/2019 Cygwin Build for Windows

setup-x86_64.exe -q -P autoconf,autoconf2.5,autogen,automake,automake1.15,libtool,make,gcc-g++,mingw

2. Con gure CYGWINs default mount point (optional, but following steps use a syntax relying on this)

mount -c / -o binary,noacl,posix=0
mount -m > /etc/fstab

3. Con gure OpenMPI

Because in OpenMPI the C++ interface was removed, the option -lmpi_cxx has to be removed from the linker
defaults. We need to check if this option is contained in the wrapper control le. This depends on the installed
OpenMPI libraries.

Assuming the 64-bit CYGWIN is installed in C:\cygwin64 and /etc/fstab has been modi ed as in the previous step:

cat /c/cygwin64/usr/share/openmpi/mpic++-wrapper-data.txt | grep lmpi_cxx

If the option is set, then the following lines would be the result of the above grep command:

libs=-lmpi_cxx -lmpi
libs_static=-lmpi_cxx -lmpi -lopen-rte -lopen-pal -lm -lgdi3

NOTE: If -lmpi_cxx was not found, skip the next step

If this is the case, edit mpic++-wrapper-data.txt and remove the -lmpi_cxx options so that the respective lines look
like this:

libs_static=-lmpi -lopen-rte -lopen-pal -lm -lgdi3

4. Set the Python version for the installation process (for permanent setting add this line to ~/.profile )

export PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3.7

5. Get the SU2 source code:

Download following le for SU2 version 6.2.0

wget https://github.com/su2code/SU2/archive/v6.2.0.tar.gz

Extract les and change into the folder where the les were extracted to:

tar -xzvf v6.2.0.tar.gz

cd SU2-6.2.0

NOTE: This is later the folder where the SU2_HOME variable points to

6. Run the utility for autoconf/automake toolchain setup:


7. Create Make les:

NOTE: didn’t yet get tecio working, therefore disabled with --disable-tecio
NOTE: Removed -DHAVE_EXECINFO_H from metis cpp ags (potentially could be solved via
gnulib (https://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/manual/html_node/execinfo_002eh.html))

./configure --prefix=/home/Andreas/SU2-6.2.0 -enable-mpi --with-cc=/usr/bin/mpicc --with-cxx=/usr/bin/

mpicxx --disable-tecio --with-metis-cppflags="-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DNDEBUG -DNDEBUG2 -DHAVE_GETLIN

8. Compile and link using:


9. Distribute executables, etc. to their intended locations:

make install

10. Add the $SU2_HOME and $SU2_RUN environment variables to ~/.bashrc (and source ~/.bashrc )

export SU2_RUN="path_where_you_want_the_Executables" (use same folder here as in the configure command

export SU2_HOME="/d/software/CFD/SU2/SU2-6.2.0" <-- UPDATE THIS folder according to your environment
export PATH=$PATH:$SU2_RUN

11. Test serial and parallel versions:

cd $SU2_HOME/QuickStart

SERIAL command (due to the previous step SU2_CFD.exe should now be available in the path):

SU2_CFD.exe inv_NACA0012.cfg

PARALLEL command: Both mpirun and mpiexec do the same; mpiexec is recommended as the standard command.

mpiexec -n 4 SU2_CFD.exe inv_NACA0012.cfg

If more processes are requested than cores are available an error will be thrown:

There are not enough slots available in the system.

On WINDOWS this can be if hyperthreading is active. A system physically having 4 CPUs (cores), would show 8 CPUs
in case of hyperthreading. Oversubscribe allows more processes than cores (which not necessarily is faster).

mpiexec -n 8 -oversubscribe SU2_CFD.exe inv_NACA0012.cfg
