@HaoZeke The flag for being out of date was five hours ago. You need to learn some patience.

Please update or disown for adoption, Thanks!

Because UIUC requires a username and password for the downloads, you must download the file separately and place it in the same directory as the PKGBUILD. There is no possible way to automatically download it.

On the download page (, it's this entry:

LINUX_64 OpenGL, CUDA, OptiX, OSPRay (Linux (RHEL 6.7 and later) 64-bit Intel/AMD x86_64 SSE, with CUDA 8.x, OptiX, OSPRay)

Currently fails to build:

==> Retrieving sources...
==> ERROR: vmd-1.9.3.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA8-OptiX4-OSPRay111p1.opengl.tar.gz was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

Yes, thanks for the reminder.

I have removed the 32-bit version since the binary is no longer provided.

If there are other issues with this binary, comment and I will switch to compiling from source.

Any plans to update the package? VMD 1.9.3 has been out for a while now

anntzer commented on 2016-06-06 04:24

I also get a different md5sum, namely

23f560cedc72c00473430a7bc0772586 vmd-1.9.2.bin.LINUXAMD64.opengl.tar.gz
(VMD 1.9.2 for Linux (64-bit x86_64) using OpenGL, CUDA.)

Could you change the mesa-libgl dependency to just libgl? This way nvidia-libgl will satisfy the requirement as well.

steabert commented on 2015-05-28 07:34

which file did you download and what is it's md5sum?

sachkris commented on 2015-05-27 10:17

The md5sum of the file I downloaded from the official website is different from what is there in the PKGBUILD. Is it out of date?
