- 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.

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.

In the lab i work we dont usually even update unless an important bug is found on the one we use or some important feature is released with a new version.

Our upgrade from 3 to 4 was quite bumpy and even within the first releases of the 4 series.

Anyway thank you for your feedbacks, guys.

Please do not update to gromacs5 until the developers consider it suitable for production runs. Right now this is not the case. Notice for example the note in the download section where clearly states: "Please note that these are not yet regarded as production quality, pending further testing, but the code is now feature-stable."

In my humble opinion and with the experience in the transition from gromacs3 to gromacs4 it will take at least one or more releases to be safe to use for production quality runs. I think we should wait until then a bit for the update and in the mean while keep in the 4.6 branch. Soon there will be an update 4.6.6 will includes all bug fixes in gromacs5.
