Name        : lapack
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 3.4.2
Release     : 8.fc20
URL         : http://www.netlib.org/lapack/
Summary     : Numerical linear algebra package libraries
Description :
LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKage) is a standard library for numerical
linear algebra. LAPACK provides routines for solving systems of
simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear
systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value
problems. Associated matrix factorizations (LU, Cholesky, QR, SVD,
Schur, and generalized Schur) and related computations (i.e.,
reordering of Schur factorizations and estimating condition numbers)
are also included. LAPACK can handle dense and banded matrices, but
not general sparse matrices. Similar functionality is provided for
real and complex matrices in both single and double precision. LAPACK
is coded in Fortran90 and built with gcc.

Update Information:

Thread safe build of LAPACK, so that the library can be called in parallel sections.

* Thu Dec 18 2014 Susi Lehtola <jussilehtola at fedoraproject.org> - 3.4.2-8

* Mon Jul  7 2014 Tom Callaway <spot at fedoraproject.org> - 3.4.2-7
- fix issues with BLAS found by R
* Thu Jun 19 2014 Tom Callaway <spot at fedoraproject.org> - 3.4.2-6
- compile in tmglib object files, not static lib
* Tue Jun 17 2014 Tom Callaway <spot at fedoraproject.org> - 3.4.2-4
