Hi Hassan,

you need to make sure that the information given in tutorials is complete, correct and useful at a minimum level, for example, if installing software on linux, you need to differentiate several distributions, at least rpm based like RHEL, Fedora CentOS, and Debian (Debian, Ubuntu, etc.) based distros, as well as building from source. Also, you should mention the easiest way, both distributions have packages for gromacs, there are different parallel API options (e.g. open MPI which is highly recommended for heavy simulations), See https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=gromacs, for CentOS gromacs 4.7 (a bit older) is found in the epel repo:

There are also packages for all the dependencies (cmake, fftw3) in both flavors. To install the dependencies, most likely either:

yum install cmake fftw3

or

apt-get install cmake fftw3

will be enough.

Can't you install it from BioLinux or from Linux Brew?

Yes, BioLinux is debian, so sudo apt-get install gromacs should work, LinuxBrew is good if you want to install into your home directory.
