Re: [AMBER] Problems Compiling Amber10

Hi Gordon,

Does Amber10 not install successfully, or does it simply not pass all of the
tests? In any case, describing what happens is not as helpful for us as
exact transcript of what happened on the command-line itself. Can you
provide us with the error messages that popped up when you built Amber10?

On the other hand, if Amber10 built OK, and just some of the tests failed,
it would be helpful to see a log of which tests failed so we may be able to
say whether or not they're OK.

Note that you should not worry about any failures or errors in AmberTools
1.2 (built alongside Amber10), especially for tleap. There were a number of
segfaulting issues in tleap from AmberTools 1.2 that Mengjuei fixed for
AmberTools 1.3 and greater, so you should just use the AmberTools programs
shipped with AT 1.5 (which you can build alongside Amber11).
