Thanks Diego,

But, the latest I found on downloads of gromcs webpage was 4.0.3! Is 4.0.4
somewhere else?

get gromacs 4.04


Confirm if you changed the permissions correctly and can write anywhere in


Are you doing this as 'root'  or super user (sudo) ? Because if you are just
a regular user, will won't be able to change the permissions in /usr/local/.
So, configure gmx to be installed in your local dir.


./configure --prefix=/global/home/pirzadeh/gmx404

Hi All,

I realized that I am missing (Lib and bin folders) analysis tools and mdrun
MPI. I re-installed the GROMACS 4.0.3, and I found that when I get to 'make
install-mdrun' the following messages show up ( I am just copying last

I changed the permissions and I am still receiving the same message. I will
e appreciated if someone tell me what is going wrong?!
