Name        : gromacs
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 4.5.2
Release     : 2.fc13
URL         : http://www.gromacs.org
Summary     : Fast, Free and Flexible Molecular Dynamics
Description :
GROMACS is a versatile and extremely well optimized package to perform
molecular dynamics computer simulations and subsequent trajectory analysis.
It is developed for biomolecules like proteins, but the extremely high
performance means it is used also in several other field like polymer chemistry
and solid state physics.

This package provides single and double precision binaries.
The documentation is in the package gromacs-common.

mdrun has been compiled with thread parallellization, so it runs in parallel
on shared memory systems. If you want to run on a cluster, you probably want
to install one of the MPI parallellized packages.

N.B. All binaries have names starting with g_, for example mdrun has been
renamed to g_mdrun.
