Dear Sir,

I have been tried to install on a PC cluster machine,
but some errors were shown and installation was not
completed. The reason why we cannot install is that
the machine has no Intel Fortran compiler on it.

The error log is the follows.

[xxxxx src]$ make serial
Starting installation of Amber8 (serial) at Mon Aug 6 17:48:20 JST 2007.
mkdir ../exe
mkdir: cannot create directory `../exe': File exists
make: [serial] Error 1 (ignored)
cd lib; make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/xxxxx/amber8/src/lib'
cpp -traditional -P -I/xxxxx/amber8/src/include new2oldparm.f > _new2oldparm.f
ifc -c -w95 -mp1 -O0 -o new2oldparm.o _new2oldparm.f
ifc: warning: The Intel Fortran driver is now named ifort. You can suppress thi
s message with '-quiet'

Error: A license for FComp is not available (-5,357).

Make sure that a license file is being used that contains a license
for the requested feature. If your license requires a license server,
make sure that the server is using the right license file (usually,
this would be the same license file that is being used by this
application), and make sure that you have not changed the license
file since starting the server.

License file(s) used were (in this order):
     1. /opt/intel/licenses/intel.lic
     2. /opt/intel/fce/9.1.032/licenses/*.lic
     3. /opt/intel/licenses/COM_L_CMP_CPP_9FN3-M4JNZJHF.lic
     4. /opt/intel/fce/9.1.032/bin/*.lic

ifort: error: could not checkout FLEXlm license
make[1]: *** [new2oldparm.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/xxxxx/amber8/src/lib'
make: *** [serial] Error 2

We introduce gnu g95 compiler and the "f90" description
in the makefile was changed to "g95", but the result
was the same.

To install AMBER 8, both of Intel C compiler and Intel
Fortran compiler are necessary?
And if there are any other necessity to install,
what should be prepared?

Our system information is as follows.

OS: CentOS release 4.4
kernel: 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp (x86_64)
CPU: Intel Xeon 5160 3GHz
Compiler: Intel C compiler version 9.1
