Last attempt to post from this webmail server, I hope you don't get four
copies of the mail and that you get more than the first line. Sorry about that.
I reply with a copy to the list because I have problems equilibrating the box.
Actually, it "looks" equilibrated. I mean that I begin a 1ns simulation and for
the first 221690 steps (1fs each, so the first 221.69ps) the density,
temperature, energies (KE, PE, LJ, Coulomb, dispersion, LR etc), volume, x,y,z,
of the box seam stable oscillating around reasonable values. Looking at the
ngmx animation, everything looks fine as well. But then, after step 221690 I
get a crash. Here is the output:

Of course I looked at the box size but at the last recorded step it is OK. Any
ideas, suggestions, help?

As for the use of an OPLS topology with ffgmx or gromos96, I don't think it's
possible because you will have to change all !
the atom t
y
pes from explicit hydrogens to combined CH3 in the topology and in the
coordinates and then reequilibrate. It would be simpler to use
directly the $GMXDATA/top/methanol.itp topology included with the
distribution and make a box of it.

Anyway, as I had said before, when I resolve this NaN box vectors problem I
will deposit the box in the gromacs site for whom t might
want to use it.
