I looked through the mailing lists to see if this question
was already asked but could not find anything.

In the PETSc TACC2008 tutorial, it states that PETSc interfaces
with Scalapack?

I would like to know what is supported from Scalapack. I am particularly
interested in:
1. Cholesky factorization (I know there are a couple of alternative options here, e.g. PLAPACK).
2. Dense eigenvalue solver
