[gmx-users] Installation with CUDA on Debian / gcc 6+

Hi all,

we try to install Gromacs with CUDA support on a Debian system. Cuda 
complains about the gcc 6.30 naively installed on Debian, since Cuda 
supports gcc only until gcc 5.

The problem is that Debian removed packages for gcc-5, so installing an 
older gcc is more tedious.

We understand that CUDA support for gcc strongly depends on the Linux 
Distribution, see


Therefore: Is there any workaround to compile Gromacs with CUDA under 
Debian with a gcc 6+ ?

Thanks a lot,
