I am having considerable trouble in getting Perl’s Math::GSL installed on openSUSE 11.0. I am working on AMD Turion 64 X2, 2Gb RAM and perl 5.10.0. First I had trouble with older versions of GSL. Now, after getting that compiled from source it seems that Math::GSL does not like the way the BLAS library available from the SUSE repositories was compiled. Has anyone had problems with this?
I have no direct answer to your question, but I am interested when you get one I need it for something too.
Octave is using BLAS, so it must be supported somehow. I need it as part of it++, will soon look into that.
Yes, Octave uses BLAS without problems. However, it is Math::GSL which cries about BLAS. I am not entirely sure about the solution. I will have to try to compile BLAS from source anyway but I wanted to ask if someone in this forum had experience with the problem.
