Hi Steve,

I can at least answer your queries with respect to GAMESS...

(1) I've got the March 2010 version of GAMESS and RED-vIII.4 and they
work fine together. I see no reason why the Oct 2010 version of
GAMESS would have any difficulties.
(2) Provided that the rungms script is in your path (or rather, the
directory that contains rungms), RED will interface with GAMESS in a
transparent manner. That is, you simply run RED and it takes care of
feeding GAMESS the geometry optimization and/or electrostatic
potential calculation scripts, feeding the results to resp, etc.
(This reminds me, the AMBER bin/exe directory should also be in your
path so that resp can be used.) You still might want to play with the
perl script to optimize it for your system (e.g., how many processors
it should use), but it is otherwise pretty much ready to go...



P.S. I believe the explicit mailing list for RED is
, but Francois will no doubt chime in with the correct info!
