Let us know if Maxim's suggestion makes any difference.
Maxim, Thanks for the tip.
Another thing to check is to see which CUDA runtime .dylib your locally
compiled VMD is actually picking up when it runs.
Since you have several on your system, one question I would ask is whether
anything would have changed your DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH
or similar environment variables in such a way that VMD is now picking
up the wrong .dylib where it had not previously.
In the binaries we produce, we use the MacOS X 'install_name_tool' and
'otool' commands to set some of our library dependency paths in such a
way that they are unlikely to be overridden by environment variable
changes like the ones above, but if you compile VMD from source and
don't do this on your own, then anything could potentially happen if
system-wide paths are changed such that the wrong .dylib shows up earlier
in the search path.
It should be easy to attach a debugger to your VMD during startup to
help track down what's going on there. When the debugger attaches, it will
usually print out what shared libraries the app is linked against and what
they were resolved to, and this would help track down if there's something
bad going on with mismatched .dylib files...
