Dear Ivan,
                 Yes, you were right....the native BLAS version of my ubuntu system is:

Matrix products: default
BLAS:   /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/blas/libblas.so.3.10.0
LAPACK: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/lapack/liblapack.so.3.10.0

Updating BLAS with ropenblas(), as you said,is superficial.

Will reverting back to you if stuck again....with mclapply..

A million thanks  again...

THanking you,
Yours sincerely,

What's the version of OpenBLAS in the Ubuntu release you are running?
Unless you can see significant improvements regarding your CPU
architecture appearing since the version included in Ubuntu was
released, there's little reason to install a different version
manually. The whole point of a GNU/Linux distro is not having to
compile everything yourself. Ubuntu's build of OpenBLAS contains
multiple copies of the code targeted at different processors, including

It looks like this function accepts the names of git tags in the
official OpenBLAS Git repository, but it's really the job of the
package maintainer to document important arguments like this one
properly. You can call bug.report(package = 'ropenblas') or write an
e-mail to maintainer('ropenblas') or locate the author's GitHub and ask
a question there.

Best regards,
