Testing GROMACS on Linux ARM64

GROMACS version: Latest
GROMACS modification: No

Hello devs!

At Installation guide — GROMACS 2021.2 documentation it is clearly stated that ARM64 architecture is a supported one!

I see that the project uses GitHub Actions as a CI tool: Actions · gromacs/gromacs · GitHub.
Since GitHub Actions does not support non-x86_64 I was wondering whether the project also uses a second CI for testing regularly on non-x86_64 architectures ?


Hi Martin,

Github actions are mainly used for Windows. We use our gilab CI infrastructure, but at the moment, since the transition, we only do automated testing on x86 platforms.


Thank you for your answer, @pszilard !

I work for OpenLab Testing (https://openlabtesting.org) and we would like to donate a Linux ARM64 VM to GROMACS project that could be used as a CI agent and/or for debugging purposes long term.
If the project team is interested then please contact me privately at mgrigorov at apache dot org to discuss the details (preferred Linux distro, hardware specs, etc.).
