Dear Miguel,

I would try version 8.0 of Intel compilers with more recent linux
distributions (such as Suse 9.0). Version 7.0 didn't support newer glibc
libraries, which might be the reason you could compile in Suse 8.0 but
not in 9.0. That said, I was able to successfully compile amber7 (and
parallel sander passed all the tests) on Suse 9.0 using Intel fortran
compilers version 8.0 and mpich- I was using the Machine file
from the following amber page under RedHat 9 or Suse 8.2 sections:

Hope this helps,
