Hi,
I'm not sure that there is a package, but if all goes right for scalars, you can replace the scalars operators for Times and Power with their matrix equivalents

say, for scalars you need to solve a==b+c x

Solve[a==b+c x,x]
which returns
{{x -> (a - b)/c}}
or in FullForm format


Solve[a==b+c x,x]//fullForm

now, replace Times with Dot and Power with MatrixPower , e.g.,
Solve[a==b+c x,x]/.{Times->Dot, Power-> MatrixPower}

You need to be more careful with definitions of operations between matrices and scalars, but this also can be done.

good luck

yehuda
