Installing Numeric with ATLAS and LAPACK

Thanks John. Those are the steps I followed, and to no avail.

Interestingly, I downloaded and installed SciPy, and ran the
same eigenvector problem. SciPy greatly speeds up the
calculation...was 1.5 hours using Numeric, now only 15 min
with SciPy.

Unfortunately, SciPy only solves ordinary and generalized
eigenvalue problems of a square matrix. They do not test
to see if the matrix is symmetric, then call the appropriate
routine from LAPACK.
