Hi Suraya. I have succesfully installed Gromacs 4.5, 4.6, and 5.0 on my
macbook pro running OS X Mavericks, even with CUDA support.
I am not using apple compiler because apple compiler in Mavericks (clang
3.4) doesn't support OpenMP, that will cause many errors when compiling
gromacs (my experience) so that i use gcc 4.7 compiler instead. Here my
step to install Gromacs on My MacbookPro mid 2009.
-Install GCC/G++ 4.7. Its very easy to install gcc/g++ 4.7 via MacPorts (
www.macports.org) because it is almost automatic as all dependencies will
-Download Gromacs 5.0/5.0.01/5.0.2
-Extract the downloaded file
-open the downloaded folder in terminal. If you don't familiar how to open
folder in terminal, then just right click -> service --> new terminal at
folder (if this options doesn't exists, do the following steps : system
preferences --> keyboard --> shortcut --> service --> new folder at
- just type: *cmake .. -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=/opt/local/bin/gcc
-DCUDA_TOOLKIT_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local/cuda -DGMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW=ON *then press
- everything should be set up, and the fftw is also automatically
downloaded and compiled.
- then type *make -j 2 *(if your macbook has 2 cores)
- then * make install*
- run *make check *if you compile 5.0.2
- then type *export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/gromacs/bin/* every time you want
to start gromacs
that's it. good luck
