> Unless you specifically want installing test packages, you can test the success of your gromacs installation
by typing "luck" at the console and checking whether it returns
something like "gcq# ...".

*In addition, after "make install" the note was:
> "Make sure to update your PATH and MANPATH to find the
> programs and unix manual pages, and possibly LD_LIBRARY_PATH
> or /etc/ld.so.conf if you are using dynamic libraries."
> Could you please let me know what should I do to resolve the problem regarding make tests
>  and what should I do about the note on PATH and MANPATH?*
> If "luck" is working  then you should not worry about setting PATH for your
gromacs programs.
