Debian installer improved a lot the last few years. Otherwise, try
Ubuntu, which is easier to install than mac os x on supported hardware
(I am not kidding). Both distributions have correct blas, lapack and
testers/timers (I basically copied their scheme and adapted it for the
rpms_). They also package atlas correctly.

This one has nothing to do with Suse, at least. When compiling
softwares, you have to install a lot of -devel (-dev on debian)
packages. This kind of information should be easy to add to the wiki,

Good to hear. I can update to 1.0.3 if you need it. Note that because it
uses the reference blas and lapack, it will be relatively slow compared
to say ATLAS or MKL. But I took quite a great care to package blas and
lapack with their testers and timers, dynamically linked to blas and
lapack, so that you can use them to test other implementations (say ATLAS).
