Hi all,

Thanks for reply, John.:)

I have used the file provided by you. But, sadly I am still getting error.
The section of error message.

I have followed exactly, what you have said. Renamed the ffG43a2x.itp.

In general I am trying lipid simulation with following step:

1) Get dppc_npat, dppc.itp and lipid.itp from Prof. Tieleman site.

2) Get (i)ffG43a2x.tar
(which has following
ffG43a2x.hdb, ffG43a2xnb.itp, ffG43a2x.rtp)
       (ii)ffgmx_lipids.tar (which has following files:
ffgmx.atp, ffgmxbon.itp, ffgmxnb.itp, ffgmx.itp)

(3)use pdb2gmx, editconf, genbox command with appropriate parameter

4)edit *.top file with following:
(i)#include ffG43a2x.itp and #include dppc.itp
(ii)#include ffgmx.itp and #include dppc.itp
(Note: In both cases i am getting error, which i have mailed in group erlier)
(5)The reason i am not including lipid.itp is two:
(i) The lipid parameters are already included in the ffgmx.itp and
ffgmnb.itp (that i got from untaring ffgmx_lipids.tar)
(ii)When i include, lipid.itp also,the error of "second directive comes"
(6) Get the *.itp file, provided by John, and rename it as ffG43a2x.itp.
(7) Run grompp
-----------------error while grompp----------

-----------------section of topology file-------
; Include forcefield parameters
#include "ffG43a2x.itp"
#include "dppc.itp"
[ moleculetype ]
; Name            nrexcl
Protein_A           3

Is there any more step to follow, please tell me. I doing lipid simulation
for first time.
