AMBER: Problem with divcon - increasing MXATTS?

Amber users,

I am trying use antechamber to create prep (and frcmod) files for a large
ligand (126 atoms). It is essentially two protien chains linked together
by an organic backbone. When I run antechamber I get the following error
message:

CARTESIAN AM1 STANDARD DIRECT OPT=BFGS XTEST=0.0001 CHARGE=-3

created by wmopcrt()


 CARTESIAN - CARTESIAN COORDINATE FORMAT SELECTED

 FERMI ENERGY = 0.00000000 EV


I have tried increasing MXATTS to 150 (and then 400) and then recompiled
divcon, but I still get the same error message. Does anybody have any
advice on how to get around this problem? Or can divcon not deal with such
a large ligand?

Many thanks
