RE: RE: FATAL ERROR with "File exists"

Whenever I see mpi being invoked and things taking longer than they should, my first question is always what version of NAMD are you running? See my response below. Its also considered bad form to hijack threads. Electrons are free(ish)! Make your own thread please.

Hi,
I°Įm using MDFF to make flexible fitting of the X-ray coordinate to my EM map. The sample has helical symmetry. So I make the namd configure with helical symmetry constrains. But after I submit my job, it looks like the computers have been keeping at the "Info: CREATING 48136 COMPUTE OBJECTS " stage for several days without no more new output. Why the processors can't go to the next computation stage, my system is too big? Any suggestions are appreciated.
Regards,
Yan
The following is the last several lines of the log file after I submit my namd job, which always stay at this stage and no more lines are output:
