[Numpy-discussion] eig hangs

I set up a linux machine without BLAS, LAPACK, ATLAS, hoping that
lapack_lite would take over.  For the moment, I am not concerned
about speed -- I just want something that will work with small
matricies.  I installed numpy, and it passes all of the tests OK, but
it hangs when doing eig:

u, v = linalg.eig(rand(10,10))
# ....lots of nothing....

Do you *need* the linear algebra libraries for eig? BTW,  inverse
seems to work fine.
