I'm currently running the latest release of Ubuntu with VMWare Fusion on M2 MacBook Pro. I'm having issues trying to download a molecular physics software called "VMD": the issue is that, downloading the Linux version, the program expects an AMD64 architecture while my system runs on ARM64. I had no issues downloading other programs such as VIM or GEDIT, I would really appreciate some help, thank you!
AMD64 code is 64-bit Intel - that will not run under Ubuntu for ARM64 vim and gedit run because they have been recompiled by Ubuntu to run on ARM64.
By “VMD”, do you mean the VMD program that is provided by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign? If so, they have an alpha version 1.6.4 that runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs.
I'm aware of that thank you, I need to use a Linux machine because some other programs don't have a Apple Silicon version.
Thank you for the other reply, I'll look more into the x64 to ARM translator
