I am mostly following this post to install OBOE on MAC OS X 10.9.

However, following step 4, I tried to install LAPACK++ with failure from this source:

I type ./configure

configure: error: Blas/Lapack was not found.
*** This means Lapack++ and matrix support cannot be compiled.
*** This makes this library unusable. Please get blas and lapack
*** installed. If you do have these installed, use the options
*** --with-blas=<libname> or --with-lapack=<libname> and/or set
*** the env variable LDFLAGS to include the appropriate linker
*** flags.

But I have libblas.a, liblapack.a, librefblas.a, libtmglib.a in my /usr/local/lin folder. Can any one help?


Do you have BLAS installed first? According to these detailed, step-by-step instructions:

First, you have to install BLAS, because LAPACK requires it.

More instructions on installing LAPACK++ on Mac OS X can be found here.

  • yea, I install BLAS first then installed LAPACK – user40780 Nov 25 '14 at 0:00
