How do I install in debian like distros?

 CAMD libraries

CAMD is a constrained version of the minimum degree AMD code, and is
useful only when in cases where constrained permutations are used
SuiteSparse (probably in CHOLMOD, and perhaps UMFPACK). It can give a
boost in speed   particularly if used with the non open source METIS
libraries. However, if you can't find CAMD in the build process, the
debian SuiteSparse package was built without it, or with a version prior
to the release of CAMD. Therefore the underlying code doesn't use it,
and you'll loose no functionality..


David, Riccardo,

I don't know if this is related,
but on MacOSX
configure will not detect CAMD unless I add
explicitely add something like:
LIBS="-lcamd "
to the configure command.


P.S. As far as I understand, although it is not free  software,
METIS is open source.
