Hi there,
    After quite some pain, I finally managed to build a LAPACK + ATLAS 
rpm useful for  numpy and scipy. Read the following if you use Fedora 
Core or OpenSuse and are tired to install unsuccessfully numpy, scipy, 
BLAS, LAPACK or ATLAS. Instructions are given there:

http://www.scipy.org/Installing_SciPy/Linux (ashigabou repository)

    - Fedora Core 5, 6  and 7 and openSUSE 10.2 are supported (x86, and 
x86_64 for FC 7 and openSuse).
    - binary rpms for numpy, scipy and blas/lapack dependencies.
    - source rpm for atlas, for a really easy, 3 commands build of ATLAS 
(should work for both x86 and x86_64).
    numpy and scipy are the last releases, including some backported 
changes to make it work on 64 bits. Atlas is the last developement 
version, with a trivial patch to build shared blas and lapack which can 
be used as drop in replacements for netlib blas and lapack.
    I would like to hear people complains. If people want other 
distributions supported by the opensuse build system (such as mandriva), 
I would like to hear it too.
