Hi All,

I am installing GROMACS using cygwin.

I am following the steps as mentioned :

*no 5, make install command give the following error in the end :*

Creating library file: .libs/libgmx.dll.a
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [libgmx.la] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

and* make links command gives the following error:*
$ make links
cd /usr/local/gromacs/bin && programs=`ls` && cd /usr/local/bin && \
        for i in $programs; do \
           (test ! -f $i && ln -s /usr/local/gromacs/bin/$i . ; exit 0); \
/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /usr/local/gromacs/bin: No such file or directory
make: *** [links] Error 1

Can anyone de-code thsi error and help me how should I successfully proceed
for the same.

Thanks in advance.
