Yes it was a good start. But I want to make use of the "runbatch_2.8" script tailored for Ranger, and when I use my own compiled version it does not work. It looks like there are several switches/flags set that are intended for a performance speedup on ranger, that I would normally otherwise not set myself, so I want to make use of these.
The updated versions of NAMD, charm++, tcl and fftw also does not make it possible to follow the script on the site completely, although I have made a functioning version.
Here is the error I get when I try to use my own compiled version of NAMD 2.8 with a modified runbatch_2.8.
