Have you tried NAMD 2.6b1 on AMD64 dual core machines? I still have some
random failures when running simulations on this architecture the most

the Processor number is also random. I thought that I had already solved
this by recompiling charm++ with gcc3 option, but now I am getting this
message again. Nevertheless there are some other error messages that
have dissapeared. I am now wondering if the problems are due to the
compiler version I am using.
If you have working binaries for this architecture could you please send
them to me? This way I would be able to discard hardware problems. The
nodes are connected through gigabit ethernet.
