You have to check your installation. For starters, linux filenames are case sensitive. Do you have a /Lib directory with the capital L? If so, what is the output of find /Lib -name "libblas*" ? If not, try the same with /lib instead of Lib.
Thank me when we reach some result. Now, which directory liblapack resides in? Same for lapack and blas. Just in case, are they valid libraries - what does nm liblapack_LINUX.a display?. > this is driving me insane Is this your first deadline? Relax, there are many more ahead. Insanity is not productive.
