For a non-periodic system, just setting ntb=0 turns off Ewald (PME).

Turning off PME for a periodic system is not generally recommended, but
setting use_pme to 0 should work. The "neutralizing plasma" message is
irrelevant (since you don't have the reciprocal part anyway); I suppose
we should turn off that message if use_pme is 0, but that is a pretty rare

The EWALD BOMB message is coming from some other problem, but there is not
enough information in your message for me to figure out what it is. Try
running a short simulation with pme turned on to see if that works, or
provides any additional information.

..good luck...dac
