Re: [AMBER-Developers] help with installation instructions

I have fairly detailed instructions for several things here:

There are instructions for setting up a Mac, Windows (scanty instructions),
and Ubuntu for use with computational chemistry in general with specifics
on setting it up for Amber. It gives a quick walkthrough on how to use
both aptitude and MacPorts.

Setting up a Mac:
Installing Amber 12:

There's also a section for installing Amber (AT15+Amber11 and Amber 12),
which includes some tricks and stuff to get the CUDA stuff working (driver
installation) and sander.APBS as well. You're free to link to it, pull
data from it, whatever you want.

All the best,
