[gmx-users] disulphide bonds

Thanks for the suggestion but when I use -merge command it says segmentation
error. Let me put the problem in a more elaborated way.
I am running this simulation on insulin. It has two chains "a" and "b" which
are independent fragments but there are two inter disulphide bonds between
the two chains. If I keep the two chains as a single molecule (as -merge
command does) gromacs could recognize the inter dishlphide bonds but while
running the following error appears:
396 398 113.3 0.1470 0.2974 0.1470
398 399 93.1 0.1530 0.4267 0.1530
399 400 45.5 0.1230 0.1693 0.1230
399 401 46.5 0.1330 0.1881 0.1330
Step= 2, Dmax= 5.0e-03 nm, Epot= -3.06153e+22 Fmax= inf, atom= 25

Range checking error:
Explanation: During neighborsearching, we assign each particle to a grid
based on its coordinates. If your system contains collisions or parameter
errors that give particles very high velocities you might end up with some
coordinates being +-Infinity or NaN (not-a-number). Obviously, we cannot
put these on a grid, so this is usually where we detect those errors.
Make sure your system is properly energy-minimized and that the potential
energy seems reasonable before trying again.
Variable ci has value -2147483648. It should have been within [ 0 .. 1000 ]
Please report this to the mailing list (gmx-users at gromacs.org)
Where as, if I keep these two as separate molecules it couldnt recognize the
two inter disulphide bonds but its running. Now it is adding hydrogens to
the sulhur atoms.
Is there any way to fix this problem ? Is there any way to edit the topology
file to remove the added hydrogen atoms ?
