I used amb2gmx.pl (from http://chemistry.csulb.edu/ffamber/) to convert
an amber topology and restart file to a gromacs topology and structure
file and tried to continue the simulation in gromacs. I got the
following error message:

Constraint error in algorithm Lincs at step 0

t = 0.000 ps: Water molecule starting at atom 4642 can not be settled.
Check for bad contacts and/or reduce the time-step. Wrote pdb files with
previous and current coordinates

It seems strange to me that this error occurs as there was no problem
with this simulation in amber. (it ran a few ns in amber).
I tried to run it after minimalization and this worked fine. So there
seems to be a problem while converting the files, I am new to gromacs
and I don't really have a clue how to find the cause of this problem,
perhaps some of you also tried to continue a amber run in gromacs?

kind regards,
