Re: [AMBER] installing Amber 11 & tools 1.4 on Fedora 14

Dear Andre,

The installation guide from the AMBER manual should suffice on any linux
distro, I believe .. You need to compile from source and fortunately as
with AMBER 10 this process is relatively straight forward ... If you
follow the manual instructions you should get it installed and it should
run ...At compilation time, all the required libraries will also be
built (netcdf, fftw ...)

If running on cluster, unless you use the default GNU compiler and the
default MPI library, you should probably (at least according to my
experience) compile the MPI you'd like to use using exactly the same
compiler as you'll be using for AMBER...

Pay lot of attention to all tests and carefully inspect any possible
test failures ... This is the very important stage in which you can
understand if your compilation is viable ...

If you are a novice on computers, linux, compilations maybe best would
be if somebody assists you (e..g. your IT admin)
