James,

Can you try with CPU version of NAMD?

Emilia,

I've already tried to increase minimization step number but result was the same.

Briefly I've just tried to minimize my system (for example the system which I've shown or also I have the same system with reduced water layers) during equilibration step6.1 with namd 2.9(gpu-simulation regime). By the way what other options of the minimization can I change besides step number as well as integrator timestep (e.g can I vary gradient degree or minimization algorithm )?

You can minimize more steps before dynamics starts. The default number in the input might be too small for your big system.

It looks like my system have not been equilibrated properly and I have the same eror only in case of big systems. How I could fix it?

James,

My labmate has downloaded your files and ran step6.1 input using NAMD_2.9_Linux-x86_64-TCP/namd2. We didn't find any problems with the minimization and it was working well in our test.

Dear all !

Thanks for suggestions!

I've mentioned in the adjacent topic the problem of minimization for the system consisted of many lipids + water (produced by charm_gui).

Briefly when I try to minimize clashes in big systems ( many lipids + solvent) the minimization didt work ( its looks like all atoms were frozen during whole minimization trajectory so the clashes didnt resolved ).

When I try to minimize the same system without water (only lipids)- there were no problem at all (the lipid tales constantly moves during minimization resolving clashes between them) .

To fix this problem I've tried to add FIX ATOMS to all water according to tutorial but the problem have not been solved in case of big systems. How I should minimize it ?

CHARMM-GUI generates step_assembly.xplor.psf, which can be used in NAMD. Perhaps this file is not displayed on webpage. You can download every file generated by GUI by using "download .tgz" link on the upper right corner of the webpage.

Dear Namd Users!

I've already seen similar topic previously but didn't find any possible solution.

How I could use charm gui outputs to generate namd psf file of the generated membrane ? In my case charm gui generated 6 files

but how I can create psf from that data?
