I tried your repository
with two machines running openSUSE 10.2:
1. AMD Athlon desktop
2. Pentium-M laptop.
The repository works with Yast (installation program).
The prebuilt packages work on both machines. They especially work with
matplotlib from the http://repos.opensuse.org/science/ repository. (I
didn't try timers and testers.)
Building Atlas succeeds on the Pentium-M (2). On the Athlon (1) the
sanity checks fail.
The resulting Atlas RPM is missing two links:
/usr/lib/atlas/sse2/libblas.so.3 -> /usr/lib/atlas/sse2/libblas.so.3.0
/usr/lib/atlas/sse2/liblapack.so.3 -> /usr/lib/atlas/sse2/liblapack.so.3.0
When I try your one line examples, I see a nine times speedup with
Thank you for your efforts! You provide an easy way to install Atlas
on Suse for the first time.
I still think you should contribute to the
http://repos.opensuse.org/science/ repository. Then this quite
comprehensive repository would get decent Blas and Atlas too.
