Development rpm for lapack

Postby jkissane » 2010/08/25 09:01:41

I'm searching for the devel version of the lapack rpm that comes with centos 4.8, i.e. the development version of this:

lapack-3.0-25.1.x86_64.rpm

presumably would be called

lapack-devel-3.0-25.1.x86_64.rpm

No problem getting it for Centos 5.x but I couldn't find a trace of it for Centos 4?

Thanks!

Looks to me like the development libraries are included in the lapack RPM for 4.x. What are you missing?

Thanks for the response, I was hunting for the various .h files to allow someone to compile a program that uses lapack. I'll download the source tarball for them instead & they can use that.

Since Lapack is FORTRAN, you may want to look at the Atlas library available from EPEL. Did not check to see if a RHEL/CentOS-4 version is available.
