Re: cion & LINMIN failure

I solved my problem. Using parm96.dat was the source of LINMIN FAILURE. I
happened to find that the vdw radius of IM (CL- ion) is 0.0 in parm96.dat.
I was able to stop LINMIN FAILURE by using parm94.dat instead. Thanks for
giving me your replies, anyway.

Now, I am wondering why parm96.dat includes such a strange CL- ion.
