What is the (environment?) variable I need to change to get a new
installation of GROMACS to use the /top files from a previous
installation. (I may not edit the /top files from the new
i.e. How do I redirect GROMACS to look in my old /top directory for .rtp
I have been using GROMACS for a while successfully.
I now want to run a version of GROMACS owned by another group. By
sourcing the appropriate GMXRC my machine correctly runs using the new
copy of the program
However I want to continue to use the old files from /top , for example
ffGMX43a1.rtp which I have edited.
I thought it would be a case of setenv $GMXDATA to the directory that
contains /top, however this does not work: e.g. pdb2gmx continues to
refer to the /top files in the new installation.
Indeed if I change $GMXDATA to somewhere altogether wrong pdb2gmx
continues to use the /top from the new installation.
I have got it to work by copying the .rtp (etc) files in to the
directory where I am running pdb2gmx but this is not an acceptable long
term solution for me.
How do I redirect GROMACS to look in my old /top directory?
