[SciPy-user] 'from scipy import linalg' fails

Hi David,

I am installing scipy for quant researchers and do need the most optimized version of blas there is. Therefore, I chose ATLAS.

ATLAS offers an example of ATLAS/lapack combination on Red Hat. 
I follow every step of the way exactly as it's stated in the atlas_install.pdf document. 

I still run into the issue of "undefined symbol: srotmg_"

I am wondering if the version of gcc 3.2.3 has anything to do with it.

What details do I need to provide here for analysis?

Thank you,

Your ATLAS is not correctly built. Unless you really need the extra speed, you should use the basic blas/lapack from netlib.org, they are much easier to build.
