Gromacs 2022 fiase after updating Ubuntu to 22.04

GROMACS version: 2022
GROMACS modification: No

I had installed and used GROMACS 2022 in my workstation w/o problems until I ungraded to Ubuntu 22.04.

Now if I try to run gmx I set the following error message:
gmx: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_PRIVATE’ not found (required by gmx)

I tried to compile gmx 2022 again with the following cmake line:


cmake seems to work fine w/o Errors, but when I do the make part, after a while I set the following error message:

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libopenblas.a(sormtr.o): in function sormtr_': (.text+0x34e): undefined reference to _gfortran_concat_string’

make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:6200: src/programs/CMakeFiles/gmx.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:166: all] Error 2

How can I fix either of these issues?



Hello Raul,

Were you running CMake in a clean directory, or have you just re-run it in the old build directory? If it’s the latter, I suggest fully clearing the directory and building from scratch.

If that does not help, it looks like the problem comes from libopenblas. You can try adding -DGMX_EXTERNAL_BLAS=OFF -DGMX_EXTERNAL_LAPACK=OFF to your CMake call to build BLAS and LAPACK libraries bundled with GROMACS instead of trying to use the ones provided by the OS.
