I actually solved this issue. The problem was that the libcudart.so.4
library that comes with NAMD 2.9 is different than the libcudart.so.4 that
comes with the CUDA library. Because the files were of three same name,
there was a problem reading the correct version. The latter does not work
with multiple gpu on single node, so the one that comes with NAMD must be
linked to the ld_library_path appropriately. once done this works
There was something about this in the manual but it was not clear due to
the same library name.
