[SciPy-user] clapack--installation problem

Dear Pearu,

thanks for your reply.

> Just a guess: did you run python in scipy directory? 

No I had tried running it from other places too. The strange thing (to me) is 
that, even if Python returns an "exceptions.ImportError: No module named 
clapack", scipy still *seems* to be working just fine (or at least I can use 
the functions I needed most so far, or even play with the nice wxPython-based 
plotting tutorial).

not really good-looking I guess:

atlas_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

blas_info:
  FOUND:
    libraries = ['blas']
    library_dirs = ['/usr/lib']

blas_src_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

fftw_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

lapack_info:
  FOUND:
    libraries = ['lapack']
    library_dirs = ['/usr/lib']

lapack_src_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

x11_info:
  FOUND:
    libraries = ['X11']
    library_dirs = ['/usr/X11R6/lib']
    include_dirs = ['/usr/X11R6/include']

> ? And what is the exact location of your atlas library?

it's in $HOME/ATLAS/lib/Linux_P4SSE2_2/

> ls -l /path/to/your/atlas/lib{lapack,f77blas,cblas,atlas}.a

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      7436968 Aug 16 03:29 libatlas.a
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       313244 Aug 16 03:23 libcblas.a
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       356926 Aug 16 03:29 libf77blas.a
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      5335460 Aug 16 13:56 liblapack.a

By the way, am I supposed to find a clapack.so somewhere in the 
scipy/build/lib.linux-i686-2.2/ folder?  

Thanks.
Giovanni
