Is numpy/scipy linux apt or PYPI installation linked with ACML?
Hi all, I have AMD processor and I would like to get to know what's the easiest way to install numpy/scipy linked with ACML. Is it possible to link linux apt or PYPI installation linked with ACML? Answer for the same question about MKL also would be useful, however, AFAIK it has commercial license and thus can't be handled in the ways. Thank you in advance, D.

For the MKL, the easiest solution is to get EPD, or to build numpy/scipy by yourself, although the later is not that easy. For ACML, I don't know how difficult it is, but I would be surprised if it worked out of the box.
cheers,

Are free EPD distributions linked with MKL and ACML? Does anyone know is SAGE or PythonXY already linked with ACML or MKL?
Thanks, D.

Yes, also the free academic EPDs are linked to MKL. I don't know about sage, but probably not.

I think the main issue is that ACML didn't have an official CBLAS interface, so you have to check if they provide one now. If thy do, it should be almost easy to link against it.

ACML has a C interface for BLAS and LAPACK, but it is different from cblas.
For portability, stick with the Fortran 77 interface, particularly for LAPACK where no C interface is specified.
One can probably get cblas from Netlib and link with libacml. cblas is just a wrapper for the Fortran routines.
