Dear all,

I am setting up a new workstation and tried to compile VMD 1.9.2b1 with
CUDA 6.5.14. CUDA compiled fined, test samples OK. However when I tried
to compile VMD I get the following error

"Compiling --> msmpot_cuda.o ...
nvcc fatal : Unsupported gpu architecture 'compute_10'
make: *** [msmpot_cuda.o] Error 1"

My machine has a Quadro K4000 graphics card, NVIDIA driver 340.46,
openSUSE 13.1 (gcc 4.8)

Does anyone have any clue about how to solve this issue ?
