I've been trying to get scipy to work on 64bit systems, running SUSE 10.0
with gcc  4.0.2 and g77  3.3.5. The compilation goes ok, but the tests fails
bellow). The same is happening for two diferent machines (Xeon and

I know the doc's say gcc 3.x is recommended, but the same Suse distribution
and software  for 32 bits architecture works without any problems (it seems
work well even with the AMD optimized LAPACK library)...

Does anybody have any sugestions?
