[gmx-users] Configuration on an IBM power computer

Dear all,

I have a problem with the configuration of gmx3.3 on an IBM power 
computer which was reported in here in the mailing list previously by 
Xie Yinghong. When trying to configure a parallel version of gmx on an 
IBM power computer with operating system AIX, I recieve the error

    "cannot compute sizeof (int)".

I have contacted Xie Yinghong who told me that this problem only occurs 
with the parallel and not with the sequential version. He could not 
solve the problem, but, rather, uses gmx3.2 now for which the problem 
does not occur. This is, however, no option for me, as I want to use a 
feature not implemented in gmx3.2 yet.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
