RE: AMBER: Increase lastrst in the &cntrl namelist

Dear Dave & Sichum,
Just to take a chance to be corrected if needed-
I had the same problem and I increased "lastist" and "lastrst" untill SANDER stopped complaining. In my case, I creased it to:
lastist = 2500000,
lastrst = 10000000,
My system was of 57000 atoms in periodic boundary MD in SANDER8.

Dear David,

Thank you for your response.

I'm using Amber8 and sander is built with -DHAS_10_12.

After I insert one line into the namelist like:
 lastrst = 800000,

I have the error as follows:
 Exceeding lastrst in get_stack
   lastrst = 6504
   top_stk= 0
   isize = 22133
   request= 22133
  Increase lastrst in the &cntrl namelist

I have the same error message without the "lastrst = 800000,"
