[phenixbb] on Phenix10

Dear Tim and All,
For phenix.real_space_refine, there is no log file as output file. For the new official version of phenix10, I also have tried to add H for the phenix.real_space_refine. However rather than to decrease the clash, the clash score increased to about 40 from 30, with H addition by phenix.pdbtools before phenix.real_space_refine was run.
Thus I hope I can get more comments related to the issue.
Best regards.

 Dear Smith,

hydrogen positions are calculated from the geometry of the binding 
environment. You can add them at any resolution.

Did you read the log file and judge the parameter settings in phenix? Did you 
increase the number of refinement cycle to ease the transition to a new 
version? Did you check the model in Coot to fix the problems?
