Peter -
Okay, it is not actually in the amber8/test tests, it is in the
amber8/benchmarks tests (hb, to be exact). This is part of my standard
pmemd testing, along with about 20 others, so that is how I am certain ntr=1
basically works. I am still fighting to get completely correctly executing
code for pmemd from pgi. It can probably be done; an i/o problem earlier is
probably a 32/64 bit problem (we have a suggestion to use 64 bit compiles on
the web site; on the utah cluster I am working on this seems to be a bad
idea...). It looks like some f90 features like cpu_time may be a little
loosely defined, but I will have to play with it some more. I will
definitely have sample config.h's for pmemd for pathscale by early next
week, if not sooner. I hope to know more about the pgi issues in the next
week also.
Regards - Bob
