Hi Stefano,
Oh I see - it appears to be a problem with the Mac DelPhi download.  I 
tried getting this myself, and could not run the executable, with this 
error message (probably the same problem you had):

meng% /Users/meng/Desktop/release1.1/exe/delphiMacOSX; exit
dyld: /Users/meng/Desktop/release1.1/exe/delphiMacOSX can't open 
library: /opt/ibmcmp/lib/libxlf90.dylib  (No such file or directory, 
errno = 2)
Trace/BPT trap
[Process completed]

I'm not an expert at understanding these messages, but it looks like 
the executable is looking for some code library that is not there.

If you could run the executable successfully, the next step would be to 
put it in your "path," so that just typing the name of the executable 
in a Mac Terminal window would run the program.  That would allow 
DelPhiController to connect properly.  You would also want to download 
the DelPhi "sample data"


which has charge and radius parameter files that can be used with the 
program. Sadly, in our current situation, we cannot use the program. I 
do not have the programming expertise to fix this library problem, but 
if any of us figures it out, we will definitely let you know.

If you do get a fix from the Honig lab, it would be great if you could 
let me (or chimera-users) know - probably several of us would like to 
use this software on a Mac.  Sorry about the trouble,
