I've been using the multithreaded linear algebra package jblas on Chrome OS, which is called from some Java code. When attempting matrix multiplication via mmul, the following error is thrown:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: org.jblas.NativeBlas.dgemm(CCIIID[DII[DIID[DII)V
        at org.jblas.NativeBlas.dgemm(Native Method)
        at org.jblas.SimpleBlas.gemm(SimpleBlas.java:247)
        at org.jblas.DoubleMatrix.mmuli(DoubleMatrix.java:1781)
        at org.jblas.DoubleMatrix.mmul(DoubleMatrix.java:3138)

Over on Github, we're told that this error is likely due to missing the libgfortran3 package. I wish to compile it from sources as most downloads appear to be architecture-specific, but I can't find the tarball anywhere. Where can I find it?

In addition to the solution above, it's crucial to note that jblas also imposes the following runtime dependencies.


gfortran-4.6 libgfortran3


gfortran-multilib gfortran-doc gfortran-4.6-multilib gfortran-4.6-doc libgfortran3-dbg
