I am interested in using the multi-copy algorithms in NAMD on my Linux workstation. It is a standard Dell Precision workstation with 8 cores. I want to do this for debugging some codes.
I downloaded the installation listed under "Linux-x86_64-netlrts<> (Multi-copy algorithms)" and tried to run it with the following command.

charmrun +p4 ++local ./namd2 +replicas 16 initial.conf +stdout output/%02d/job00.%04d.log

The program would not start. My questions are:

1. Is this the right version of NAMD for using the multiple copy algorithms?
2. If yes, what is the correct way to launch the executable.
