Re: contraint failure in RATTLE algorithm

Hi Brian,
Thanks for the suggestions. Upgrading to version
2.5 is unfortunately not an immediate option, as
our sys admin person is busy for the next few
days. We tried gradually increasing the
temperature, as you suggested, using the following
reassignFreq 1000
reassignTemp 25
reassignIncr 25
reassignHold 300
numsteps 50000
minimize 1000
reinitvels 0
However, we got the same error message. We tried
running the entire simulation at 1 Kelvin and
still had the RATTLE error, so I don't think that
a sudden jump in temperature is the problem. Do
you have any other ideas?
