Hi Juyong,


Your compilers are very old – especially gcc-2.96. You need to update your compilers. Ideally you want at least gcc-3.4. If it is difficult to get the cluster software upgraded then you could try compiling statically on your local machine and then copying thing over – I think this should work, at least for amber tools.


All the best

Subject: AMBER: Amber10 installation error


Dear, amber developers

Hi, I'm trying to install amber10 in the linux cluster.
Though I succeded in installing single CPU version amber10 in my desktop, I encounted following error message while compiling AmberTools in the cluster.

/usr/include/g++-3/iostream.h:106: instantiated from here
../../freelib/boost/format/internals.hpp:106: warning: unused parameter `locale_t *loc_default'

Another problem is that ./configure_at -mpi gcc command also occurs the error.
It says that -m32 option is not valid.

Could you give me a hint for these problems?
I couldn't find the thread about this kind of the problems. :)

Specification of the cluster is as following :
OS : Linux lg03 2.4.20-28.7smp #1 SMP Thu Dec 18 11:18:31 EST 2003 i686 unknown
ifort version : Version 8.1
gcc version 2.96
cpu : xeon 2.8GHz
