DD Boost packages download and installation.

Download DDBoost

On any linux system, download the DD Boost packages by running command:

  • For FE-Workflow:
  • git clone
  • For FE-Toolkit:
  • git clone
  • For FE-MDEngine: Most of the FE-MDEngine has been already integrated into Amber22. Please contact Prof. Darrin York if you want to get access to our most recent updates for this MD Engine)

Afterwards, two folders should be available in your local directory.

$ ls
fe-toolkit FE-Workflow

FE-Toolkit installation

Now go to fe-toolkit/, load the mpi module (if you don’t have the mpi installed, you can install either openmpi or mpich, then load the module), run the script to install the graphmbar and ndfes.

$ ls
doc examples src
$ module load mpi
$ sh

A wall of code will show up, now go grab a cup of coffee if you want to.
After the installation is completed, you should expect the following:


And there will be several files to activate when you are using the FE-Toolkit

$ ls
ACTIVATE.txt doc examples fetoolkit.bashrc fetoolkit.module local src

Now we are going to source the .bashrc file.

source fetoolkit.bashrc

Your get output

Modifying environment to use fetoolkit

The FE-Toolkit part is done.

FE-Workflow installation

Now we are moving to the FE-Workflow/ folder. It is assumed you have your Amber installed and the ${AMBERHOME} is set.

Run the script, and you will be prompted to enter the path to

    1. ${AMBERHOME}
    2. FE-Toolkit

You can also modify the setup_directives file to change the path of each package and re-run the script.

After the script is completed, you will see a prompt to source the FE-Workflow.bashrc to set the environment variables.

The FE-Workflow part is done.
