[Dock-fans] Could Not Complete Growth Error

Hi Austin,

How are you orienting the ligands? I assume you are using
automated_matching = yes? If so, what is your sphere input file that you
specify in the parameter file? If you open up the spheres in Chimera, do
they fall where you expect with respect to your protein? If you also open
up the box / grid, does it surround the spheres with a wide margin? Feel
free to cut and paste the contents of your dock.in file so we can see
whether there are any red flags.
