[gmx-users] Negative pressure in NVT simulation

Following this subject, if one wants to do a simulation with freeze groups
using the Verlet cutoff scheme in order to make efficient use of GPU
processing is it possible to use energy group exclusions? I tried it a
while ago (I am not sure if it was version 5.1 or 2016) and received an
error message saying that energy_grp_exclusions could not be used with the
Verlet schemce. If this is not possible how should one proceed to perform
simulations with freeze groups with the Verlet scheme?
Thanks in advance,
