Subject: error when solvating a system
To: VMD-L <>

Hi John,

I've been trying to solvate a system using the plugin solvate. This
system is really big, so when it is almost going to finish, I get the
following message:

Info: segment complete.
Info: writing psf file sys1-water.psf

total of 5434576 bonds
total of 4309388 angles

total of 209070 impropers
total of 77670 cross-terms

psfplugin) Detected a Charmm31 PSF file
Info) Using plugin psf for structure file microtubule-water.psf
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what(): St9bad_alloc

And that's all. Do you have any hint on what would be the problem? I'm
using a workstation with 2 double-core Opteron processors,4 GB RAM.
