[PATCH] Add option to use static external BLAS library

Postby GArik_ » Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:46 pm

Hi, forum.

It was hard to me to find out why cmake is unable to find my ATLAS libraries. After some investigation and looking into FindBLAS.cmake I found that cmake reguires -DBLAS_STATIC=ON. I think it is a good idea to provide an option for BLAS_STATIC, so it will be visible with ccmake.
Code: Select all

P.S. Please don't forget to raise version number in CMakeLists.txt before releasing 3.3.1. Sometimes version number does not matter and sometimes it does.
