Installation instructions

Unpack the archive in your $GAPHOME/pkg directory, and then type

cd linboxing-0.5.1

to build the kernel module. The package will not work without the kernel module. For further build options, see the help for configure, or chapter 2 of the package manual.

Running GAP with the linboxing package

Once the kernel module is successfully built, you can use the package from within GAP by typing LoadPackage("linboxing"). To avoid memory conflicts between GAP and LinBox, you will most likely need to run GAP with either the -a or -m command-line switch. See the README or chapter 2 of the package manual for more details.
