Cannot install R language

Thanks a lot for your help Dirk.
That's while searching for a way to run your solution that I found one witch worked. I found a tutorial which
told me to execute the following command :
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marutter/rrutter
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install r-base r-base-dev
It worked ! Installing r studio after was no problem.

Compiling an older version of R (2.11.1) on Ubuntu 13.10

Hello all,

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
successful commands):

    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'

    Execution halted

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.

I take an error, don't work my R :(

Good day for all: I've installed R version 3.1.0, when I try to load R it respond:

Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) : 
  unable to load shared object '/usr/lib/R/library/stats/libs/stats.so':
  /usr/lib/liblapack.so.3gf: undefined symbol: ATL_chemv
Durante la inicialización - Mensajes de aviso perdidos
package ‘stats’ in options("defaultPackages") was not found 

I make a google seek but it talk about some librarys, I was the task like in
https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-sig-debian/2012-May/001871.html  but the error remain here.

50% performance of custom R build compared to PPA R for a command


I have R installed from the Ubuntu PPA and a local build of R (more
details below). I will refer to these as "R" and "R-devel",
respectively. I've reproduced the following on Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04.
Below is an example (which requires the bootstrap package) that takes
10 seconds for me to run with R-devel and 5 seconds with R

theta <- function(ind) {
    easy <- lm(strength ~ E1+E2, data=tooth, subset=ind)
    diffi<- lm(strength ~ D1+D2, data=tooth, subset=ind)
    (sum(resid(easy)^2) - sum(resid(diffi)^2))/13   }
tooth.boot <- bootstrap(1:13, 2000, theta)

I'm wondering if this is due to different compiler flags. For R, when
installing the bootstrap package, I see
gcc -std=gnu99 -shared -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -Wl,-z,relro -o
bootstrap.so boott.o -lgfortran -lm -lquadmath -L/usr/lib/R/lib -lR

For R-devel I see:
ccache gcc -shared -L/usr/local/lib -o bootstrap.so boott.o -lgfortran
-lm -lquadmath -L/usr/local/lib/R-devel/lib/R/lib -lR

My install script for the local build is based on Dirk's script [1].
In particular, my configure command is:

R_PAPERSIZE=letter R_BATCHSAVE="--no-save --no-restore"
R_BROWSER=xdg-open PAGER=/usr/bin/pager PERL=/usr/bin/perl

debian testing CRAN repositories

Dear all,

i've a Debian jessie on my home pcs.

For the repositories of CRAN packages, to the best of my knowledge, there

1) http://debian-r.debian.net/

2) http://debian.cran.r-project.org/

3) http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian/

I'm a bit confused and need a little advice: which better (if one is so)
for my setting? In order to make packages dependencies happy and
integration with the standard debian system "smooth", I "have" to use the
first, right?

Many thanks

Segfaults on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi list,

I've just upgraded my Ubuntu system to 14.04 / Trusty Tahr. I now find that
when I launch the "R" software environment, I immediately get a
segmentation fault with no further warning or error message.

I tried removing the relevant base package, which seemed to successfully
remove R entirely from my system:

    sudo aptitude remove --purge r-base-core

I then simply reinstalled r-base-core, but same error persists.

my sources.list shows:

    deb http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/
    deb-src http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/

I then simply downloaded the Debian wheezy .deb for R 3.1.0 instead and
installed that, which worked just fine.  Just wondering if anyone else has
encountered this problem on the Ubuntu version and/or if I should report
this as a bug, and to whom.  (My apologies, the Debian package information
for the ubuntu .deb file isn't particularly clear on to whom I should
report bugs).

Re: Ubuntu 13.10 - not able to upgrade R

Looks like you will need to update packages in a specific order. Since
spatial depends on date, date needs to updated first.


Then try again and see what it tells you next.
It's a bit of a pain but will eventually work. The other option is to
dump the list of current packages. Uninstall the old and try to install
from the list.

How to use rainbow function without the gamma argument

I am using a old code (probably written for R 2.5) and it stops when
calling rainbow() with gamma argument. I saw that gamma argument is not
present in newer version of R rainbow function. How can I translate this
line of code:

rainbow(100, s = 1.0, v = 0.75, start = 0.0, end = 0.75, gamma = 1.5)


It fails with:

Error in rainbow(100, s = 1, v = 0.75, start = 0, end = 0.75, gamma = 1.5)
  unused argument (gamma = 1.5)
Calls: nmfconsensus ... matrix.abs.plot -> image -> image.default -> rainbow
Execution halted

Ubuntu 13.10 - not able to upgrade R

I'm having some issues upgrading R. I'm using ubuntu linux 13.10, saucy and would like to upgrade R to the new
version.I'm currently using 3.0.1
I've been following the instructions given in:1.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10476713/how-to-upgrade-r-in-ubuntuand2. http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/

Here is exactly what i did, following mostly the stackoverflow description:
1) Added the cran mirror link to the sources list(I've actually tryed with 3 different mirrors just in
case)sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.listdeb http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/ saucy/
2) Getting the key step gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key E084DAB9gpg -a --export
E084DAB9 | sudo apt-key add -
3) Run the updates/upgradessudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
After a large list of succesful updates i get the following result in the terminal:

W: Failed to fetch http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/saucy/InRelease  
W: Failed to fetch http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/saucy/Release.gpg  Cannot

Network is unreachable) [IP: 2607:f140:0:8000::201 80]
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.Reading package
lists... DoneBuilding dependency tree       Reading state information... Done0 upgraded, 0 newly
installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I've done this a few times. At this point there are no more updates and the R error is isolated.
Is there a solution to this or should i just re-install R.
Thanks for your time,
