You should avoid installing Amber as root! Install, test, and run it as
an ordinary user. You are being "incautious" in doing anything as root
that does not really require those privileges.

We would need to know information about your OS, compiler settings, and
so on. As you can see from, Amber20 and
AmberTools20 *should* work on many variants of Linux, and on Mac OSX.
That doesn't mean that it will work on each individual machine, but
debugging this will require more information.

You should also go to the AmberTools/test/nab directory and run the
tests there by hand, to see in any errors come to the screen, or if the
jobs were partially done.

Also note that errors in nab test won't bother you if you don't plan to
use nab (which is a long-deprecated part of Amber).
