Subject: AMBER: Problem with carnal on linux

Dear Amber users,

I have the following problem using carnal (AMBER6.0) on redhat 7.3:

when I specify more than one file in the streams section of the input
file, carnal crashes (see the files below), while with a single file it
doesn't. _
Input file :_

  PARM p1;
  STREAM s1 mdcrd16 mdcrd16b;
  COORD c1 trajpdb.pdb PDB;
  GROUP g1 s1 (RES 1 - 350);
  IMAGE i1 g1%cmass;
  COORD c1 i1;

_output file :

_ - CARNAL -
              AMBER 6.0


input stdin
> PARM p1;
Reading parm file (
parm: opening title:

> STREAM s1 mdcrd16 mdcrd16b;
Using default parm ( for STREAM s1
 (box will be read from stream)
stream: opening mdcrd16b


However, using exactly the same input and crd files on another
machine (sgi indigo or sun ultrasparc) everything works fine.

Did someone face this problem and is it a bug fixed in following version

Thanks in advance.
