Ok, I took a brief look at this: I forgot that Ubuntu and Debian added an aditional library suffix to libraries depending on gfortran ABI. I added support for this in numpy.distutils - which was looking for libraries explicitely; could you retry *without* a site.cfg ? It should work, now,
And it won't, because I am afraid the Ubuntu atlas package is broken in 8.10... They use the gfortran ABI, but they built the fortran wrappers with g77, according to ATL_buildinfo.
I would strongly advise using atlas on Ubuntu 8.10 until this bug is solved: it means any numpy/scipy code using linear algebra is potentially broken (segfault, wrong results).
