Be sure to download the correct sander.REM test suite from the Amber web
site, if you have not done so.

The "psander" code in Amber 8 does not work, and this is never even compiled
as a part of the distribution. Don't try to compile and use this.

This won't work unless you obtain the lmod code separately from Istvan
Kolossvary. How are you running the test suite?

This is worth worrying about, if you wish to use pmemd.

Have you downloaded and installed the mmtsb toolkit? Again, this is not
one of the standard tests.

I suggest that you just do "make test" in the $AMBERHOME/test directory,
and look carefully at the _reasons_ why the test cases failed. Many of the
non-default test cases that are in princple accessible are not intended for
the standard install.

...good luck....dac
