Hi Daniel, 

	as I mentioned in the bugreport at


the debian package adds a prefix to the library names , to avoid name clashes,
as explained in the README.Debian file, and that's why you cannnot find 
libml.so but you will find libtrilinos_ml.so

	A quick fix would be to create a directory with properly named links to 
the debian prefixed libraries and add this directory to LD_LIBRARY_PATH or a 
file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d

	I wrote a simple script to do just that, but then I found another 
packaging bug, since it also misses to install the libpytrilinos.so library...
	I looked at the source debian/rules file and did a few changes, but then 
I coudln't build a package from it.
	Are you able to try the 10.0.x debian package?
