AMBER: Troubling with installing Amber8

Date: Sun, 9 Dec 2007 20:06:18 +0800

Dear Amber users,
I know that there are many instructions on installing Amber, I tried but they just don't work for me.
I'm using Ubuntu as my Linux OS. I untared the file and put it as follow
I downloaded the bugfix.all and did according to the instruction.
Then I tried to compile it using
      $./configure -p4 ifort
but it does work.
So I downloaded the G95 Debian package from the Internet to use the g95 compiler.
When I typed in
           lyz.lyz:~/amber8/src$ ./configure -p4 g95
something like this displayed

AMBERHOME is set to /home/lyz/amber8
Setting up Amber configuration file for architecture: g95
Using parallel communications library: none
Architecture/compiler g95 is not supported (?)
Usage: ./configure [flags] [compiler/architecture]
    where <compiler/architecture> is one of:
        absoft, compaqf90, efc7, hpf90, ifc7, ifort, ia64_ifort,
        pgf90, sgi_altix, sgi_mips, sparc, xlf90_aix, xlf90_suse.
    If not specified then the compiler is guessed.
So I downloaded the config,h file distributed in previous thread, and just changed the AMBER_SRC
variable according to my path, so it was: AMBER_SRC=/home/lyz/amber8/src. I attached the configure file, please find it.
Even so, it still doesn't work.
lyz.lyz:~/amber8/src$ make serial

In file lesmain.f:105
#include "SIZE.h"
Error: Unclassifiable statement at (1)
In file lesmain.f:106
and then terminated
so does that mean the problem comes from the compiler?
I don't know what else I can do, please help me. Thank you in advance
Best regards
