Dear all,
During the installation of GROMACS-2022 in cluster we are getting the following error

cmake … -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/apps/gromacs-2022 -DGMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW=ON -DREGRESSIONTEST_DOWNLOAD=ON -DGMX_FFT_LIBRARY=fftw3 -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON -DGMX_DOUBLE=ON -DGMX_MPI=ON -DGMX_GPU=ON

Target “cmTC_8bbf1” requires the language dialect “CXX17” , but CMake does
not know the compile flags to use to enable it.

CMake Error at cmake/gmxDetectTargetArchitecture.cmake:43 (try_compile):

Why this error is coming? Is it because of older version of the operating system? We have CentOS Linux 7. Please help me in this regard

Hello, this is a known issue with the outdated compilers that CentOS is shipping as the default. You need to enable a dev-toolset that provides the minimum compilers and standard libraries.

Cheers
