Hi,
  It seems pretty clear that you've got an out of date GPU driver
installed on this system. Run the command "nvidia-smi" and it should
tell us precisely what driver version you're using that is creating
the trouble. The error messages you posted below aren't from VMD,
they are actually from NAMD, so the information you listed about your VMD
installation isn't relevant to the NAMD errors you're seeing.
What version of NAMD do you have installed?

Best regards,
  John Stone
