    Perhaps you need to compile the lib yourself, using the project file(s) provided?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Try the project mailing lists.

    Yes. It's a bit annoying to install, especially on windows. However if you are on windows why not just use amds core math library?

    ntel has one too that might even be free for linux and for non commercial use.

    For linux most distros will have lapack and blas libraries, however it's usually better to compile your own after downloading the atlas source. There's a factor of 5 or so improvement to be had in some cases for a library tuned to your hardware. You may be able to find some pre compiled binaries that match your architecture as well. After that there is an annoying install for the rest of the lapack library, but it's not too bad if you just follow the instructions. Expect a few hours to compile atlas however.
