Hello all,

Sorry to bother you with a lame question, but I've tryed all I know, and
"The Oracle" (Google) provides me with no more information.

I have a thrown together cluster of on SuSE 9. I put BLAS in
/usr/local/blas, and cblas in /usr/local/cblas. I downloaded the HPL
version from the site and untarred it into /usr/local/hpl. I copied the
Makefile "Make.Linux_PII_CBLAS" into that dirrectory, and typed "make
arch=Linux_PII_CBLAS". After several lines that look fine to me (but no
compiling, just copying files), I get this:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/hpl/src/auxil/Linux_PII_CBLAS'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/root/hpl/include/hpl_misc.h',
needed by `HPL_dlacpy.o'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/hpl/src/auxil/Linux_PII_CBLAS'
make[1]: *** [build_src] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/hpl'
make: *** [build] Error 2

It appears that the makefile is wrong? I doubt this is the case because
a zillion people use this, but I don't know how to make this work.

Thanks a lot for all your help,
