Dear all,

I encountered a problem while trying to run NAMD 2.8 using Amber
forcefield. I created the prmtop and inpcrd files using AmberTools 1.2 and
used them to run NAMD.
However it failed with the error - ' FATAL ERROR: Failed to read AMBER
parm file! '
The end part of the output file is as follows:

Reading parm file (prp_3sod_11238.prmtop) ...
Command = zcat prp_3sod_11238.prmtop.Z
Filename.Z = prp_3sod_11238.prmtop.Z
Command = gzip -d -c prp_3sod_11238.prmtop.gz
Filename.gz = prp_3sod_11238.prmtop.gz
FATAL ERROR: Failed to read AMBER parm file!

I'm unable to figure out the error. Could you help me out?
I've attached the top, coor and the output files. PFA.
