R 2.13.1 on Debian Systems?

I am running 32-bit and a 64-bit Linux Mint Debian systems and the 
latest R has not yet appeared whereas it has on a Xubuntu box. Is the 
Debian update out yet?

Hello,

You can check at
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian/squeeze-cran/ that it has
not.

You can check the Debian 'package page' here:

	http://packages.qa.debian.org/r/r-base.html

R 2.13.1 was uploaded to Debian unstable the morning of its release.

What is available on CRAN is a supplementary service which (for Debian) is
provided by Johannes as explained in the README there.0

So why are you asking about Debian when you are running Mint.  Are you mixing
binaries from different distribution?

I don't know much, but I know not to mix binaries from different 
distributions. I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE), which is a 
very nice distribution that is real Debian AFAIK. I have synaptic

Ubuntu 10.04 and R: dependency problems

Hello,
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but please help if
you can.

I have Ubuntu 10.04 OS and was running
R version 2.13.1 (2011-07-08)
Copyright (C) 2011 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
ISBN 3-900051-07-0
Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)

I recently had problems using install.packages() to get 'maps' and 'mapproj'

anyway, long story short- I used synaptic package manager to remove all
R-related items.
When I reinstall it I get errors (see below).

I was actually getting similar errors when I tried to get the 'original awk'
package before I removed R
*like I said, there is a long story there.
Does anyone know what is going on, or what I should do without further
elaboration?

## errors when installing R via Synaptic
E: r-base-core: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error
exit status 10
E: r-base-dev: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: r-cran-boot: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: r-cran-mass: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

A question on the GCC toolchain compiled for ARM

Hello,

We are security researchers at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. We have a
scenario where we need to be able to compile a C source on the Android
device itself. Hence, I came upon the R project's Android port:

http://rwiki.sciviews.org/doku.php?id=getting-started:installation:android

I could not find who created the "android gcc", so I guess R porting for
Debian is the closest mailing list I could find that is related.

Good news is that I've tried the gcc on the device and it works like a
charm.
question is, the size is really large. We have simple C files with no
threading and the like.
Just bionic + linux system headers + lib math. Nothing else.

I was wondering whether I could strip the toolchain down to a bare minimum?
Or what were your steps while building it in the first place, so that I can
exclude things not needed up front?

If this is not the right place, please direct me to the right forum or the
team who did the work on the android gcc port.

Cheers,
Earlence

Re: R 2.13.1 on Debian Systems?

Hi,

I am just uploading R 2.13.1 packages for Debian squeeze and Debian lenny to 
my server from where it will be synchronised, probably still tonight, to the 
CRAN master.

Kind regards,

Johannes

JAGS 3.0 and the Ubuntu repositories: A fix for jrags users

Ubuntu R users,

Early this month, version 3.0 of JAGS was released on its Sourceforge 
page.  Dirk Eddelbuettel and I quickly rolled up packages for Debian and 
Ubuntu, respectively.  If you are an Ubuntu user who utilizes my 
Launchpad PPA for your R related .deb files, JAGS was updated automatically.

The downside to this is that JAGS 3.0 is not compatible with the R 
package rjags, also found on my PPA.  rjags has not be updated to work 
with 3.0 yet.  So, if you are using JAGS 3.0, rjags will fail to load in R.

One solution is to roll JAGS back to version 2.2.  In order to make this 
easier, I have added JAGS to the CRAN Ubuntu repository, which will 
contain the last few versions of JAGS built for Ubuntu, including 2.2. 
Links on how to pin (apt) or force (Synaptic) the version of a package 
are given below.  Please note that it could take up to a day to sync to 
your CRAN mirror.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
Michael
