Subject: [AMBER] a problem in building oligosaccharides using LEaP

There is a problem when I build oligosaccharides using LEaP.

I just simply link the residues together:
glycan1=sequence{ROH 3VA 0SA}
glycan2=sequence{ROH 6VA 0SA}

When it's 2-3 bond(glycan1), it's OK; but when it's 2-6 bond(glycan2), I
got a disordered structure.

Maybe it's because when it's 2-6 bond, it contains a sequence like this:

It contains two "-C2-O6-C6-C5-" in opposite direction.
And when LEaP automatically set the psi angle,

impose glycan2 {3 2} { {C2 O6 C6 C5 60.0} }

he doesn't know which subsequence to choose, so I got a bad structure.

Anyone knows how to deal with this problem? Any suggestion is welcome.
Thank you very much!
