Hi Tone
Thanks for the pointer. Now I go through the regualr procedure, unzip, untar, run xcConfigure; after sourcing bashrc, I try running xcrysden, I get the following error message at the bottom of the startup screen:

/users/grad/ouo2224/softwares/xcrysden/XCrySDen-pre1.5bbin-static/xcrysden: line 163: 5769 Segmentation fault ${XCRYSDEN_TOPDIR}/bin/xcrys ${XCRYSDEN_TOPDIR}/Tcl/xcInit.tcl $USE -- $XCRYSDEN_TOPDIR $XCRYSDEN_SCRATCH $ARGS >/dev/null

The I/O files you provided were sufficient to debug what is going on.
The problem is that you are running CRYSTAL06 and xcrysden 1.4, which
are not compatible.

Install the "latest snapshot" of xcrysden which is synchronized to
