Hello there,

I have been trying to install AmberTool-1.2 and Amber10 on my computer (Pentium 4, CPU 2.4 GHz, 256 GB of RAM) having Operating System Redhat Linux 9.
I tried to install AmberTool-1.2 and when I did the folllwing step
[guna_at_localhost src]$ ./configure_at gcc
I got
Setting AMBERHOME to /home/guna/amber10
Testing the C compiler
     gcc   -m32    -o     testp    testp.c
Obtaining the C++ compiler version
      g++      -v
the version is 3.2.2
Testing the g77 compiler
      g77    -02     -fno-automatic   -finite-local-zero    -o   testp    testp.f
Testing flex:
Configuring netcdf; (may be time consuming)
NETCDF configure succeeded
The configuration file, “config.h”, was successfully created.
The next step is to type “make –f Makefile_at”
Then I did
[guna_at_localhost src]$ make –f Makefile_at
I got
Competed installation of AmberTools, version 1.1
Then I did
[guna_at_localhost test]$ make –f Makefile_at test
I got
Error: AMBERHOME should be defined or else some test will fail !
make: ***[is_amberhome_defined] Error 2
Kindly help to understand why this error mesagge “AMBERHOME should be defined” appears here !
Kindly explain me how to “Set up the AMBERHOME environment variable”  as is given in the step1 of the Amber10 manual (page no. 12)
1. Set up the AMBERHOME environment variable to point to where the Amber tree resides on your machine. For example
Using csh, tcsh, etc: setenv AMBERHOME /usr/local/amber10
Using bash, sh, zsh, etc: set AMBERHOME=/usr/local/amber10
export AMBERHOME
