Hello dear NAMD users
During compiling NAMD source code 13 on ubuntu 18.01 (64bit version) I
received below error;

`.bss' can not be used when making a PIE object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Makefile:474: recipe for target 'namd2' failed
make: *** [namd2] Error 1

After googling this error and comment from "
Priyanka Mondal <pmondal_at_udel.edu>
""I am using in linux 18.04. The method was just to download the package
and update your ~/.bashrc with PATH of executable and source it .You can
access it with
./namd2 file.namd "

I added below comment to bashrc file in home directory and source it;
export PATH=$PATH:/home/kosar/NAMD/NAMD_2.13_Source/Linux-x86_64-g++

after that again I continued the compiling process. unfortunately i
received previous error!!!
I do not know what I should to do!
Any assistance is appreciated
Best regards
Kosar
