Here post your question
I am running the command “gmx grompp -f ions.mdp -c solv.gro -p topol.top -o ions.tpr”
I am getting the following error
““Fatal error:

because of this error
ERROR 1 [file inhib1.itp, line 81]:

I am using charmm36-feb2021.ff for protein topology and CGenFF version 4.4 for ligand toplogy.unable to understand why still getting this error. kindly guide.

You’re using a very old version of the script, one that exploited a hack in version 2016 that allowed for duplicate atom indices. Use a newer version of the script from the MacKerell lab website and make sure you’re using the latest GROMACS version to make use of a new type of virtual site construction that halogens require in CGenFF.

Hi Jalemkul,thank you for your quick reply.

I am using the feb2021 version of both charmm36 and CGenff.I am using py2 script of cgenff_charmm2gmx.py. Should I use py3, is that the issue?
For gromacs I am using the 2019.6 version.

All are latest except gromacs which is also 2019, which I think does not have the hack.

Kindly guide,

Hello, have you figured out this issue?
