Hi Ankush

I second Eugene's comments.

I already sent you on previous emails to this thread
all relevant information on where to
get HPL from Netlib (,
Goto BLAS from TACC (,
and the standard BLAS from Netlib (
OK, there go the links once again!

I also sent you instructions on how to install HPL,
exactly as I installed it here two days ago.
Did you read those instructions?
It is one of the messages on this thread.
Check the mailing list archive, if you don't have that email anymore.

Eugene just sent you a gotcha on how to build Netlib BLAS.
Goto BLAS is also easy to install with its "quickbuild" scripts,
and it comes with Readme, QuickInstall, and FAQ files, which you should

However, somehow you are repeating the same questions
that I and others already answered.
There isn't much more I can say to help you out.

Good luck!
