Hi all,

Slackware 64 14.1.

In python I tried
        import scipy.io.wavfile
for which I was rewarded with many lines of complaints, ending with
        ImportError: liblapack.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I do have lapack (and blas) installed, but there is only
/usr/lib64/liblapack.so, no /usr/lib64/liblapack.so.3.  When I
installed these things in Slack64 14.0 I got the .so.3 (and .so.3.4.1)
files (links), but not with 14.1.

I see there is no /var/log/scripts/ file on any of my systems for
lapack 3.5.0.  And I see the slackbuild has changed to not do the

Is this intentional?
