I could not find note 2 on p.25 from Amber2017 reference. My OS is
Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.3, and I accepted the offer to install
miniconda. Would ask you how should I do to make mpi4py normally.

Whether the "CFLAGS="-fPIC","--enable-shared are not import when I
compiled Amber16 parallel verion with mpich2?

Actually, I really like AMBER12, because it is very stable to perform Due to my GPU has been updated the two GTX1080TI,
although the serial and parallel version could be performed normally in
my OS RHEL7.3, I can't compile the cuda and cuda.MPI version in OS
RHEL7.3 since AMBER12 only support the CUDA5.5 not support CUDA8.0. Is
it possible to make amber12 to support CUDA8.0?

Many thanks in advance!
