If someone wants to run it with python interpreter should also install python25 from aur and python-numpy packages.

I've updated the package to 1.9.2. In the future, please use the "Flag package out-of-date" link.

VMD is now at the version 1.9.2, and some new packages have been added on the website (LINUX_64 OpenGL, CUDA, TachyonL-OptiX ). Could you update the PKGBUILD please ? The install went smoothly for me by just changing the md5sum for x86_64, the version number, and the package name.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('tcsh' 'perl' 'libxi' 'tcl' 'libxinerama' 'mesa-libgl' 'glu')
optdepends=('netcdf: MMTK and AMBER 9 trajectories support'
'openbabel: additional file formats support'
'sqlite: dmsplugin')

# You MUST download the package from the VMD url and put it in the PKGBUILD folder!
[ "$CARCH" = "i686" ] && source=($pkgname-$pkgver.bin.LINUX.opengl.tar.gz)
[ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ] && source=($pkgname-$pkgver.bin.LINUXAMD64-RHEL5.opengl.tar.gz)

[ "$CARCH" = "i686" ] && md5sums=('c16110b0ec9aa8e02342c654b6bb9c86')

The latest package is updated to include 'glu' as dependency, sqlite3 changed to sqlite.

Please change optdepends sqlite3 to sqlite

I had to install the "glu" package for VMD to run, so I suppose it should be a dependency. Also, thanks for packaging this!

It is supposed to require registration, and thus it's the right choice to require manual download. I think it's best to remove that link.
Quoting the PKGBUILD:
# You MUST download the package from the VMD url and put it in the PKGBUILD folder!

vmd-1.9.1.bin.LINUXAMD64.opengl.tar.gz was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

This file should be downloaded automatically.

Thank you !

I apologize for my mistake I understand now that the PKGBUILD needs the file to install it because of the license.
