[Numpy-discussion] numpy setup.py too restrictive, prevents use of fblas with cblas
Wed Apr 16 07:44:29 CDT 2008
Apologies for coming out of the woodwork so late here..
For blas/atlas etc in numpy & scipy on an opteron I use the AMD
libraries (which only have fblas) together with cblas. This works very
Current-ish SVN (v4779) in line 295-296 of numpy/core/setup.py has:
if ('NO_ATLAS_INFO',1) in blas_info.get('define_macros',):
return None # dotblas needs ATLAS, Fortran compiled
blas will not be sufficient
To get my AMD fblas/cblas approach to work, I have to comment out
these two lines.
Can this restriction preventing use of AMD fblas be removed for v1.1?
Should I file a bug here?
Regards, George Nurser.
