Precompiled installation packages

note this list is not comprehensive, is not meant to validate nor endorse a particular third-party build over others and may not always lead to the newest version

Multiple operating systems

Binaries designed to be compatible with Julia are regularly provided in https://github.com/staticfloat/OpenBLASBuilder/releases . Note that their 64bit builds with INTERFACE64=1 have _64 appended to the function symbol names, so your code needs to refer to e.g. gemm_64_ rather than gemm_

the Conda-Forge project maintains packages for the conda package manager at https://github.com/conda-forge/openblas-feedstock

FreeBSD

pkg install openblas

see https://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html

Linux

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint/Kali

OpenBLAS package is available in default repositories and can act as default BLAS in system

Example installation commands:

  $ sudo apt update
  $ apt search openblas
  $ sudo apt install libopenblas-dev
  $ sudo update-alternatives --config libblas.so.3

Alternatively, if distributor's package proves unsatisfactory, you may try latest version of OpenBLAS, Following guide in OpenBLAS FAQ

openSuSE/SLE:

Recent OpenSUSE versions include OpenBLAS in default repositories and also permit OpenBLAS to act as replacement of system-wide BLAS.

Example installation commands:

  $ sudo zypper ref
  $ zypper se openblas
  $ sudo zypper in openblas-devel
  $ sudo update-alternatives --config libblas.so.3

Should you be using older OpenSUSE or SLE that provides no OpenBLAS, you can attach optional or experimental openSUSE repository as a new package source to acquire recent build of OpenBLAS following instructions on openSUSE software site

Fedora/CentOS/RHEL

Fedora provides OpenBLAS in default installation repositories.

To install it try following:

  $ dnf search openblas
  $ dnf install openblas-devel

For CentOS/RHEL/Scientific Linux packages are provided via Fedora EPEL repository

After adding repository and repository keys installation is pretty straightforward:

  $ yum search openblas
  $ yum install openblas-devel

No alternatives mechanism is provided for BLAS, and packages in system repositories are linked against NetLib BLAS or ATLAS BLAS libraries. You may wish to re-package RPMs to use OpenBLAS instead as described here

Mageia

Mageia offers ATLAS and NetLIB LAPACK in base repositories. You can build your own OpenBLAS replacement, and once installed in /opt TODO: populate /usr/lib64 /usr/include accurately to replicate netlib with update-alternatives

Arch/Manjaro/Antergos

  $ sudo pacman -S openblas

Solaris (via pkgsrc)

OSX

https://www.macports.org/ports.php?by=name&substr=openblas

brew install openblas
