Dear all,
             I compile namd2.6 in Linux 2.6.9-5.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed
Jan 5 19:30:39 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux machine following notes.txt
which is distributed along with it. But how can I run namd in parallel mode.
I tried the following commands:
1.charmrun namd2 +p4 mem > mem.log&
but found error like
Charmrun> Error 1 returned from rsh (localhost:0)
2. charmrun namd2 ++local +p4 mem > mem.log&
but doesn't run
3. charmrun namd2 ++local popc > popc.log&
but the job is aborted immediately and the log file write only
execve failed to start process "namd2" with status: -1
So please help me. Is there any difference in installation for a single
processor anp multiple processor?
Please help me.

Thanking You
