I am trying to compile (by "hand") an old version of R (2.11.1,
specifically). "Why?", you might ask. Well, I have a program I am trying to
run (that was not written by me, but I am hoping to use in my research) that
was written in "old" R, and the program writer has specifically mentioned
that R-2.11.1 or older must be used. I have run "./configure" with no
obvious errors (the entire output being far too long to post here, but I
have been warned that I cannot make PDF, DVI, or html versions of the help
pages, which I'm not too concerned about). Next, when I pass the "make"
command, I am met with the following error (after a long stream of
Warning in solve.default(rgb):
unable to load shared library
/home/sbowerma/Programs/R-2.11.1/lib/libRlapack.so: undefined symbol:
Error in solve.default(rgb) : lapack routines cannot be loaded
Error: unable to load R code in package 'grDevices'
However, I have confirmed that the library "lapack.so" is, in fact, in the
exact position it is supposed to be. If anyone has any suggestions or fixes,
I would be most appreciative. Thanks.
