[SciPy-User] How to check inequalities for contradiction

I have a System of inequalities like this

Ax + b >= 0

where the Relation ">=" is meant to hold in every line of the equation
system. Additionally, every element of x has to be nonnegative.


m,n = A.shape


len(x) == n
len(b) == m

I have m > n.

What would be the preferred way to test whether a solution exists?
In other words, I want to test that there is no contradiction in the
system of inequalities.

The main intention of this post is to figure out whether a
out-of-the-box solution to this type of problems exists.

Thanks in advance.
