I am trying to work through the tutorial of replica exchange umbrella
sampling in NAMD. Somehow, I am getting the following error, although I do
have the colvars.conf file in the folder.

colvars: Initializing the collective variables module, version 2014-10-23.
colvars: Reading new configuration from file "colvars.conf":
colvars: Error: in opening configuration file "colvars.conf".
colvars: No such file or directory
colvars: If this error message is unclear, try recompiling with
FATAL ERROR: Error in the collective variables module: No such file or
[0] Stack Traceback:

Has anyone else faced this issue? I saw there was a bug regarding loading
colvars for restarting the simulation, but right now I am just running the
job0.conf file. Also, I am using NAMD 2.10

Best regards,
