Dear all,

I am trying to compile VMD (CVS today) on a LINUXAMD64 arch with
openSUSE 42.1 (gcc 4.8.5), cuda 7.5.18 but I get the following error:

undefined reference to symbol 'shm_unlink@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/lib64/ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:608: recipe for target 'vmd_LINUXAMD64' failed
make: *** [vmd_LINUXAMD64] Error 1

Did anybody experience this and knows a way to resolve the issue?

Thanks a lot

Best wishes
