Re: [AMBER] xleap error

I generated a new config.h file and I changed it to include

XLIBS= -L/usr/lib64

I then recompiled without errors and ran all tests, again without errors. I checked the log file of tests and I could not find any comments about looking for X11 libraries. Sleap and tleap ran fine as shown in test output, but I could not find any xleap tests. And again, it does not show up as an executalbe file. The directory /usr/lib64 has such libraries as These are the X11 libraries right?

Thanks Steve

You need to make sure you have the X11 libraries installed and accessible (e.g. libX11.a or etc). If you got a message like "Could not find the X11 libraries" when you ran configure you will have to manually set the XHOME and XLIBS variables in your config.h.
For example, in my config.h they are set to:

XHOME= /usr/X11R6
XLIBS= -L/usr/X11R6/lib64 -L/usr/X11R6/lib

So, I went to amber11/bin/ and found indeed to my surprise there is NO xleap...There is tleap and sleap. My tleap and sleap work successfully.
