        I have been going through the NAMD tutorial on my Mac OS 10.5. I
already posted for help on the Tutorial sight, and the response I
received suggested that I direct my question to the NAMD-l.
        I'm trying to run the ubq_ws_eq.conf file from the 1-2-sphere
directory. I receive the following message in the terminal -

------------- Processor 0 Exiting: Called CmiAbort ------------
Reason: FATAL ERROR: ERROR(S) IN THE CONFIGURATION FILE

Charm++ fatal error:
FATAL ERROR: ERROR(S) IN THE CONFIGURATION FILE

Abort trap

I have not manipulated the config file. I tried the config in the 1-3-
box directory and receive the same error. The log file for the
execution of ubq_ws_eq.conf is below

Charm++: standalone mode (not using charmrun)
Charm++: scheduler running in netpoll mode.
