Lapack can be installed onto linux by downloading the lapack source code from here: http://www.netlib.org/lapack/lapack-3.3.1.tgz
Once the source code is downloaded you will need to unzip and untar the file. Then cd to the directory.
Next you will need to copy the make.inc.example to make.inc
[root@computer lapack-3.3.1]# cp make.inc.example make.inc
Modify the make.inc file so that it matched your computer’s configuration.
