RE: AMBER: Troubling with installing Amber8

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your helping. I modified file config.h already. Everything seemed to be going well untill the compiler went into leap. It got some error compiling file WcCreate.h and WcActCB.c. Here are some examples:
WcCreate.h:816: error: expected ')' before 'char'
WcCreate.h:829: error: expected ')' before 'char'
WcCreate.h:842: error: expected ')' before 'char'
WcCreate.h:850: error: expected ')' before 'char'
WcActCB.c:31:28: error: X11/StringDefs.h: No such file or directory
WcActCB.c:49: warning: parameter names (without types) in function declaration
WcActCB.c: In function 'WcxActProcWidget':
WcActCB.c:54: error: expected declaration specifiers before 'Widget'
So is it because of the C compiler ?
To summerize, what I did is I used the config.h file attached above and then
  $make serial
I also attached file WcCreate.h and WcActCB.c . Sorry for bothering me but please help me to check. I has to get it done.
Thanks alot
Cong Tri

Assuming that you meant to say "it does not work", we would need details to be
of any help.

I'm not sure where you got the config.h file, but it seems to have been

In the lines that begin with ".", there should only be one ".", not two.

Amber 8 was released before there was a stable g95, but I think you should be
able to get this to work.
