Hello Everyone,

I am trying to write my own svd function to use the "dgesvd" method from 
lapack, but my problem is that I cannot find the "dgesvd" method from this 
import "from numpy.linalg import lapack_lite".

Do I have to install lapack on my system(Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit)? I want to get 
the same results as MATLAB 2011b which is why I am trying to write a slightly 
different svd function than the function from "numpy.linalg.svd".

I would appreciate your help, Thank you.
