[gmx-users] 答复: membrane protein simulation - errors

Hi Justin,

I built Gromacs 5.0.1 but it doesn't work even with pdb2gmx. Since my protein is patched with -NH3+ and -COO- at the N-terminus and C-terminus. I used -ter flag.

But the program cannot recognize the terminus and returns error.

I switched back to the Gromacs 5.0-rc1. It works fine with pdb2gmx and it fixed the error but got the previous "Non default U-B types" errors.

I don't know what is the U-B types and how it is define in the gromacs.

It's certainly possible, but I'd start with using an actual release version of
Gromacs, rather than 5.0-rc1.  Try again with 5.0.1.
