Dear All,

Has anybody managed to compile a version of Amber 6 for Redhat Linux 7.1
(Kernel 2.4.3) that successfully supports large files > 2GB on an i386
machine? Currently the maximum size of an MDCRD file under 32 bit linux
is limited to 2 GB because of the 32 bit file structure, 64 bit emulated
versions are now available in Kernel 2.4.x but I can only find
instructions for C compilation, nothing for fortran 77.

If anybody has got it working for e.g writing a 6GB MDCRD file could
they please let me know what options they used, what they changed and
what compilers were used etc.

All the best
