Re: Problem, setting up AMBERHOME!

Dear Ireena,
        since you are using the setenv command, it seems you are using csh or
tcsh (the common shells on SGI and Sun), so you might add that command
to the .cshrc file (the user's shell initialization file) in your home
directory. Alternatively, you can add that line to the system-wide
initialization file /etc/cshrc, so that the variable will be available
for all users.

Hope this help,
ciao, Andrea
