additional hints for getting some stubborn libraries and programs running.
PVM installation from source
Instructions for compiling and installing PVM from source.
File Python Source biggles 1.6.5_numpy
Deprecated! Use the official biggles 1.6.5 from the sourceforge web site instead! Repackaged version of biggles that is using numpy rather than Numeric.
File D source code biggles 1.6.4 repackaged
Deprecated! Use the official biggles 1.6.5 from the sourceforge site. The biggles 1.6.4 python module -- repackaged with an updated setup script that should be less platform dependent. The modifications only work for the (recommended) installation with "python build; python install".

Numeric / Lapack+Atlas
This section describes how to compile the Numeric python module against external (hardware-optimized) Lapack and Atlas libraries.
File D source code pypvm 0.95x repackaged
Modified PVM python bindings bundled into a new and cleaned up installation package. Version 0.95x doesn't officially exist but is our own modified variant. Use "python build; python install" to install the package!
File C source code header pvm-3.4.5 patch
patch that makes the old PVM 3.4.5 compile on newer systems (64 bit and gcc 4.x). Note that the result is still a static and not the needed dynamic library. We recommend using the PVM 3.4.5+7 pre-release instead (see package mirror).
File C source code header pvm_sharedlib patch
This patch modifies pvm 3.4.5+7 for building shared libraries. The modified files are conf/LINUX.def, conf/LINUX64.def and src/Makefile.aimk. If your architecture is neither LINUX nor LINUX64, you will need to manually add the -fpic option to the appropriate conf/*.def file.
File D source code SAP repackaged
Willie Taylors SAP program (structural alignment used by T-Coffee) packaged by Cederic Notredame. See README for license and install for installation!
