[gmx-users] ACE group in OPLS

The peptide I am simulating is capped at the N-terminus with an acetyl group.
However, after running pdb2gmx and energy minimization with the OPLS
forcefield, the ACE group is no longer covalently bound to the N-terminus. I
have not experienced this same problem with the standard gromacs force field
(ffgmx). Any ideas on how to get around this?
