5.7. atlas

Updated atlas packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is a research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques providing portable performance. The atlas packages provide C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) implementation and routines from LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKKage).

Bug Fix

BZ#723350
Previously, binary files from the base atlas package contained illegal instructions from an incompatible instruction set (3DNow!). As a consequence, an "Illegal instruction" error was displayed. This update disables usage of the instruction set.
All users of atlas are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
