Subject: AMBER: Compiler issues with Altix450

Date: Sat Mar 08 2008 - 12:37:25 CST

> I am presently trying to install AMBER 9 on an SGI Altix 450 cluster but am having difficulty. Do you have a good recommedation for a compiler which works well with this system.
> It appears from the installation instructions that a g95 compiler is recommended. I have used a g95 compiler downloaded from to install AMBER 9 on my desktop PC running RedHat. (this was after trying many other g95 compilers from the website which did not work) However, this compiler did not work with our SGI ALtix cluster.
> I have also tried an ifort compiler which works for the smaller programs but not sander (an error appears regarding a program "icc" which I am not familiar with and was not installed with our cluster).
> In any case, to avoid a long series of trial and error moves, I was wondering if you had any suggestions (such as a compiler specific to the Altix system) to get the software to compile.
> Thanks,
