Re: AMBER: RST can not be opened

In your mdin file you specify DISANG=RST ....

However, you say that you have an "" file ... So obviously the
name of your file is different than the one you specify in your mdin
file ... Of course the program cannot read any RST file because you dont
have one ..... (Your file is called so that is what you should
give in the mdin file)...

As I told you before, If I were you, I would really go through the
tutorial before doing anything else .... Otherwise you'll keep on
writing 100 emails per day and and people will not answer you anymore ...

Another advice from me is that when you get obvious errors like the one
"Unit 33 Error on OPEN: RST", please double check before sending an
email. This error tells you absolutely clearly that there is something
wrong with your RST file .... So, instead of writing emails immediately,
you could first double check your RST file, the name of it and things
like this. After that if you didnt find any solution, go the AMBER list
archive and search for your error
( If this will not help either,
than feel free to send emails to the list ...

Everybody is really helpful here and me personally I have a lot to thank
for to all the people here, but during the years I learnt that it is a
better idea to really try to fix things yourself and send emails only
when you really dont find a solution for your problem .... From your
timing, it looks like you run a script and then immediately you send us
an email ....

Now, having said this I will help you get started .... Make sure the
name of your RST file is the same in your working directory and in your
mdin script and let me know if it works ... If it still doesnt, than
what I can do is take your topology and initial coordinates + the RST
fiile and create an input file for you and test it on my machine. This
can serve as a starting point ... For that, you would need to send me
personally these files ...
