AMBER: antechamber

I am attempting to generate lipid parameters using Antechamber.
leaprc.gaff does appear to contain all force field parameters and so no
apparent problems here. However, when I tried to calculate atomic
charges, I started running into problems. When using :


Antechamber -i LIP2.pdb -fi pdb -o LIP2 -fo perpi -nc 0 -c bcc


I get an error message in my divcon.out saying "Program terminated due
to errors" I have attached the file (divcon.out) along with my pdb file.
However, it still assigned charges in my perpi output file. I believe
the perpi charges (i.e. ANTECHAMBER_PREP.AC) are library values from
AMBER correct? I also got assigned charges AM1BCC.



I also attempted to use "resp". So, I used Gaussian to generate an
output file (pop=mk) and then used "espgen" to extract ESP information.
However when I ran:


Antechamber -I LIP2.ESP -fi gout -o LIP2 -fo perpi -nc -c resp



It appears to run, but I am suspicious. I let it run for 70 minutes and
still no print out .....nothing. So I killed it.


Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?


Thanks, Steve
