Please note that many libs in Mandrake have slightly different names to
allow for backwards compatibility I suppose. On my system

rpm -qa libgc*



locate blas gives me



rpm -qf /usr/lib/libblas.so.3.0

gives me


I suggest you install these and uninstall the extraneous packages from RPM
find. I have never trusted updates myself; I keep my /home /usr/local and
/opt partitions and do a clean install after having saved my /etc
directory too.
