First off, big thanks for the MAGMA effort. I would however really appreciate if someone could please enlist a step-by-step procedure of how to make MAGMA work on Windows (or if there is such a list of steps, please point me to it). This would really help a whole bunch of folks who live mostly in the Windows universe.
I'm trying to build MAGMA 1.4.1 and have successfully been able to build/link/use some functions of MAGMA blas. However, I am not able to use any of the LAPACK functions. When I try to call these functions I get linker errors. I suspect this is because during the CMake generation process, I am probably not giving the right path to the lapack library (I tried giving both the library path and the library name, but neither worked). For MAGMA compilation, I am using a lapack/blas version compiled on my machine using the instructions given at: http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-for-window ... k/#running
. During the compilation of MAGMA, I get several linker errors related to the lapack.lib that I ask CMake to use.
Any guidance in this matter would be super appreciated!
PS: I really hope that the organizers of MAGMA could give more attention to making the usability of this wonderful library package more easy for the Windows users.
