I'm a graduate student desperately trying to finish and I'm running
into problems getting Antechamber to work. I'm working on a Mac G5
dual processor machine. I'm trying to work through the "simple example
for antechamber" in the Amber manual (p. 81). When I type in:

antechamber -i tp.pdb -fi pdb -o tp.mol2 -fo mol2 -c bcc

I get the following:

[gibbs:~] kwald% antechamber -i tp.pdb -fi pdb -o tp.mol2 -fo mol2 -c

Total number of electrons: 58; net charge: 0

Running: /usr/local/amber/exe/divcon


Cannot open divcon.out , exit

Does anyone know what is happening? How do I fix it? I read the
antechamber help page and found out that I needed to install mopac and
got my advisor to download and install mopac7. It's in the same
directory as the other amber exe files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
