<br>Hi!<br><br>My name is Jean-Francis Roy and I've got Gentoo up-and-running on a Sony PS3.<br><br>I plan to use it to do scientific calculus using the libraries given on the IBM Cell SDK, but I run into problems using them. My questions are:<br>
<br><br>- Is anybody providing ebuilds for them? I found a bug report about those but it was close with a wontfix resolution. I emailed the originator of the bug and he said he switched to another distribution that provided those libraries.<br>
- Have anybody got libraries like BLAS and LAPACK up-and-running with the bindings to other languages? I succeded in binding BLAS to GSL (GNU Scientific Library) but I get no chance with numpy (Python), multiplying big matrices give me an error message from the ALF library, saying that "alf_task_create" returned an error. I can't find out what is the problem...<br>
<br><br>Thanks a lot for you time!<br><br><br>Jean-Francis Roy<br>Laval University Grad Student<br><br>
