I am trying to give an update here so that maybe it will be easier for
someone to help me out now.
I have gone through the lapack installation and the atlas installation and
everything seems to have worked fine. Everything was compiled using the
'fPIC' option and I figured out how to make shared blas and lapack library
files with atlas. Also, I figured out how to tell Atlas that I want a
COMPLETE lapack. Now I am having trouble with the numpy install.
In the site.cfg file, I included the location where I have the include and
lib files for lapack. After install, when I test, I get the following:
[dfranci@alpha ~]$ python -c 'import numpy; numpy.test()'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
line 143, in <module>
line 47, in <module>
from linalg import *
line 29, in <module>
from numpy.linalg import lapack_lite
ImportError: liblapack.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
I notice one thing here that concerns me: numpy is trying to import a module
that it calls "lapack_lite". Does numpy always build such a module? If I
am trying to get the complete lapack, did I do something wrong?
Thanks in advance,
