I've compiled and used libEigen2.so from Eigen (which contains some BLAS stuff), boost's BLAS, and Orocos KDL for Overo on my host machine using OpenEmbedded recipes.    I have not tried Lapack or one of the classic BLASes.

I plan to submit all my recipes to OE, but don't feel they're nearly stable enough for public consumption yet.

It sounds like you might be trying to build directly on the Gumstix?  I have not tried that.

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Compiling Eigen/Lapack/BLAS for overo gumstix


I'm trying to compile a program that will need Eigen/Lapack/BLAS on the Overo. Eigen itself installs fins of course (since it's only header files), but to compile the program I will need an installation of Lapack/BLAS. Has anyone gotten this to work? What BLAS is recommended?

I tried to build Eigen's BLAS natively, but the overo ran out of memory, and when building ATLAS, it stopped due to the cache beeing too small.

Anyone has any experience?

Best regards,
Jonatan Olofsson
