Thanks for the tip. I was always wondering how come none of the gromacs developers where unaware of this problem. Now, I see. The problem was in my side.
I will add this tip in the next release.

If you are using a haswell CPU, modify march=native in the /etc/makepkg.conf:

would sovle the problem, anyway, the gromacs recommends AVX2_256 enabled if a haswell CPU was used.

- if you have a rather new INTEL CPU you might encounter that gromacs does not compile spiting errors related to AVX2_256. They look like this:

If this is your case just edit both cmake commands, one for sigle another for double precision, in the build function with:

Thanks duca for establishing and maintaining this pkgbuild! It's been a real help. Thanks to hseara for taking it up!

Guys, I am transfering this package to hseara. He's been doing most of the work keeping a functional pkgbuild already.

I was the first post of a pkgbuild for gromacs back in the 4.0.x days and i'm confident that it'll be on good hands.

hseara commented on 2014-12-09 10:45

Please, update the package with the fix below. Right now does not build.

Thank you, eomarjee. Now it builds successfully!
Hope that the original PKGBUILD file will be modified.

This package has failed to build on my system. I am not sure why.
