LAPACK provides routines for solving systems of simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. The associated matrix factorizations (LU, Cholesky, QR, SVD, Schur, generalized Schur) are also provided, as are related computations such as reordering of the Schur factorizations and estimating condition numbers. Dense and banded matrices are handled, but not general sparse matrices. In all areas, similar functionality is provided for real and complex matrices, in both single and double precision.



  • lapack = 3.8.0
  • lapack-devel = 3.8.0-74.1
  • lapack-devel(x86-64) = 3.8.0-74.1


  • lapack < 3.8.0


    Install Howto

    1. Add the openSUSE Education repository:
      # zypper addrepo opensuse-education
    2. Install lapack-devel rpm package:
      # zypper install lapack-devel


    • /usr/lib64/


    2018-01-12 - - Upate to lapack 3.8.0. [bnc#956223] * Many enhancements and additions - Remove lapack-3.2.2.patch. - Package CBLAS, adjust baselibs.conf for it. - Change the interpreter for to python3 and BuildRequire python3-base instead of python. [bnc#1075766]

    2017-05-31 - - Correct RPM groups

    2017-05-17 - - Build the man pages in a separate .spec file (lapack-man). The resulting rpm names are kept identical. This allows us to drop doxygen out of lapack's main package buildroot, thus eliminating a build cycle.

    2015-05-08 - - Fix static libraries list

    2014-07-16 - - Add baselibs.conf to sources

    2014-07-14 - - Include update-alternatives dependency in subpackages that use it to guarantee it will be available.

    2014-06-18 - - Move blas and lapack libraries to subdirectories for fixing update-alternatives [bnc#861081] - Add %posttrans scripts for fixing migration problems.

    2013-11-21 - - Update to 3.5.0 * Added Hermitian LDLT factorization routines with rook pivoting algorithm * 2-by-1 CSD to be used for tall and skinny matrix with orthonormal columns * New stopping criteria for balancing * New complex division algorithm * Various improvements - No longer removing files due to license reasons as one file is no longer part of Lapack and the others have been replaced by new ones under the normal LAPACK license

    2013-10-29 - - packaged symlinks created by update-alternative as %ghost files - removed quotes from update-alternative command to silence rpmlint warning

    2013-03-15 - - Split devel packages into devel and devel-static
