Subject: [AMBER] AMBER: segmentation fault when running parmchk

Dear AMBER users,

Whenever I use parmchk, either for a lib or pdb or prep file I always get a Segmentation fault error. Below is what the command line tells me.

~amber10/exe$ ./parmchk -i file.pdb -f pdb -o file.frcmod
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

My system is running AMBER10 with AMBERTools 1.2 on Ubuntu 9.10. There is one instance in 2004 where another user had a similar error. They were told to upload the jmins0.prep file. When I use locate jmins0.prep, nothing is found.

Best Regards,

Alex Boncheff
