That's is a incorrect claim. Your problems have absolutely nothing to do
with GROMACS, but are caused by the CUDA driver / runtime mismatch on your
system. Any application that uses the CUDA runtime (i.e. libcudart) will
fail to work if you install an incompatible driver.
For clarity, please correct your blog too.
I had not time to dig it further, but wrote down what worked for me:
Additionally, I suggest amending the post to note that the GDK and NVML
that's picked up from it is optional and it is only useful with

Again, for the sake of clarity: this is not a matter of detection. It is an
incompatibility of two external dependencies.

I'll ask my NVIDIA contact, but I suspect the only way to know this is to
dig into some header files -- or maybe even that doesn't help.
