Dear Gromacs Users and Developers,

I tried to perform a parallel tempering simulation with gromacs 4 rc2,
using two replica. I think that the way of doing so is the same
of gromacs 3, but it doesn't work

I have two topol.tpr file: topol0.tpr and topol1.tpr and I run gromacs  

mpirun -np 2 mdrun_mpi -s topol.tpr -multi 2 -replex 100

but it give the error:

cannot open file:

if i change the command line to
mpirun -np 2 mdrun_mpi -s topol0.tpr -multi 2 -replex 100
mpirun -np 2 mdrun_mpi -s topol0.tpr topol1.tpr -multi 2 -replex 100

the error became
Fatal error:
nothing to exchange win only one replica, ...

could you help me?

Thank you,

Carlo Camilloni
