[Numpy-discussion] Complete LAPACK needed
Thu Oct 30 17:16:04 CDT 2008
I need to use functions in scipy which depend on having a complete lapack
library. However, I am having a bit of trouble installing numpy and
referencing a complete lapack library that I built. I have a few questions
that I am hoping someone can help me answer:
1) This machine is a cluster, so do I need to be sure that the lapack
library is a .so file? (I think only if I want the processors to access the
file at the same time, which is my need...) If so, how do I make a shared
2) If I can tell numpy to use some default version of lapack, will it be a
3) I was unable to getting numpy installed by referencing the lapack.a
library from the site.cfg file. I also tried to set the LAPACK environment
variable in my .bashrc file, but this did not seem to work either. The
problem is that when I configure numpy, it just does not recognize this file
as a lapack library. It ignores it and tries to use an lapack lite library
located somewhere else (which doesn't even work anyway).
Any ideas? suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
