Note that Netlib's LAPACK does not contain all BLAS routines.
SUSE - like many distributions - uses LAPACK's BLAS routines to create
an RPM.

Red Hat does so as well, but they added at some point the missing routines.

openSUSE has now in Factory also those missing BLAS routines. (Actually,
if this is known, why did no one bother to write a bugreport before?)

Whether the other changes, which Red Hat did, make sense, I don't know.
At least some of them are obsolated by LAPACK 3.1.0. Someone interested
checking the Red Hat patches?

I hope that the missing BLAS-routines problems will be soon a thing of
the past as the LAPACK maintainers seems to be willing to include the 6
routines. (Seemingly there was a long-standing discussion whether (a) no
BLAS, (b) only-Lapack-needed routines or (c) all BLAS routines should be
included. The current situation up to 3.1.0 is (b); in SVN and 3.1.1
there will be allegedly (c).)



PPS: Thanks to the LAPACK maintainers, which are very responsive. It is
nice that LAPACK is maintained again. Note that LAPACK contains some new
routines which are not in Vendor LAPACK yet. (AMD: Estimated for late
this year in the AMCL.)
