Greetings!   FIrst off, the sgemm kernel is ready whenever you might
need it.  I thought I'd wait for the next developer release to check
that it actually gets installed, and to deal with any cleanup issues
that may have been newly introduced.  If you want what I have now,
please say so.

Secondarily, atlas compilation is failing on a number of architectures
supported by Debian.  The most common symptom is exhausting physical
memory in the search process.  I'm trying to get a compilation now on
the following machine:

camm@crack:~/atlas-3.0$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor	: 0
cpu		: 604
clock		: 132MHz
revision	: 3.3
bogomips	: 263.78
zero pages	: total 0 (0Kb) current: 0 (0Kb) hits: 0/75800 (0%)
machine		: Power Macintosh
motherboard	: AAPL,9500 MacRISC
L2 cache	: 512K unified
memory		: 144MB
pmac-generation	: OldWorld

This fails with both the 604 processor type, and the UNKNOWN type,
even when I set the L2 cache by hand to 512 from 4096.  Here is the
failure point in this case:

./xmasearch d -2 200

If you can't figure it out, mail all logfiles and a description
of your problem (including this error message) to atlas@cs.utk.edu.

As you can see, compilation of the xmuladd was killed with a signal 9
by the virtual memory subsystem as it exhausted the available memory.
Here is what the machine has available, which would seem plenty:

camm@crack:~/atlas-3.0$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        142692      42912      99780       5920       3404      16316

Swap:        42748      21788      20960

Similar, though not identical, things happen on ARM and m68k.  Sparc,
alpha, and i386 are fine.

Take care,
