[gmx-users] How to install gromacs on cpu cluster

Hi,  Benson,

I can install gcc-4.9 for compiling the latest version of gromacs (gromacs_2019.3) in my own account directory (/data/home/sunyp/software/GCC. For proper submission of task with PBS system, which options of cmake should I use?
According to the "Quick and dirty cluster installation" section of the gromacs installation guide, it seems that a quick and dirty installation should be done, and then another installation with MPI should be done to the same location with the non-MPI installation. I am not very clear how these should be done exactly. Could you give the exact commands?
Best regards

Hi Yeping,
Minimum required compiler version for the latest release is GCC 4.8.1 :
GROMACS 4.5 seems to indicate support for GCC 4.5 (http://www.gromacs.org/Documentation/Installation_Instructions_4.5)
Is CMAKE on your cluster? If so what version?

Hello Benson,

Thank you for respond to my question. There is no GPU on my cluster.

 Hi Yeping,

 It may be easier to install a newer version of GCC. Are there any GPUs 
 on your cluster?
