[gmx-users] Install Gromacs from Debian/Ubuntu repository vs build from source

In addition to Justin’s comments, the repository version is not adapted to GPU/CUDA use and as such is good for only very small systems and so loses one of the great advantages over other MD programs. I is not bad as an introduction to Gromacs so do not be afraid of installing, working with it and later removing to then install the source version. However, following the install instructions for the source version, installation is quite smooth.
