I have built Linux binaries of molmol 2K-2 on RH v7.3 and RH v9. You can obtain these here but I cannot guarentee these will work for you. I do not have stock RH 7.3 or RH 9 distributions for software compilation because I regularly update these systems with apt-get (the RH version, natch).


I have built both src and binary rpm packages for RH 9. To use the src rpm (recommended) just follow these simple steps:
  1. rpm -ihv molmol-2k.2.0-1.src.rpm
  2. cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
  3. rpmbuild -bb molmol-2k.2.0-src.spec
  4. cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
  5. rpm -ihv molmol-2k.2.0-1.i386.rpm

That's it!

Here are the links:



I have received a report that both binaries provided below run fine under RH v8. Hopefully they work for you too!

The following are two gzipped tar files that contain the molmol-2k.2.0-doc.tar.gz files and the binary built by me. You will need to edit the molmol script to change the location of MOLMOLHOME (7th line in the molmol script) if you do not unpack this under / (current default location is /usr/local/molmol).

Anyway, here are the links.



Here are patches for RH7.3 and RH9 if you want to try to compile this yourself. Please don't tell me these don't work for you. If you want to compile source code then you get to make the patch work! Come on, you know it's fun!



oh, rock on!
