R installation on Fedora 12


I am migrating from 64-bit RHEL 5 to 64-bit Fedora 12 and I'm getting the
following error when I run ./configure in the directory R-2.10.1...

checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... yes
checking X11/Intrinsic.h usability... no
checking X11/Intrinsic.h presence... no
checking for X11/Intrinsic.h... no
configure: error: --with-x=yes (default) and X11 headers/libs are not
available

I've used yum search to look for X11 packages and on the key word Intrinsic
without seeing something obvious.  Which package do I need to install to
get past this error?

Thanks

su -c "yum install libXt-devel"

in a shell/terminal should install the relevant header that was missing
above.

It highly likely that you are missing more of the X11 headers you'll
need and I forget now exactly which they are.

Just out of curiosity, any special reason not to use directly yum to install R ?

Thanks Gavin and Marc, never thought to look in the Appendix.

Pierre, that would be simpler, wouldn't it;  thanks for the suggestion,  DB

[Fedora-r-devel-list] R 2.11.0 in Fedora Updates Testing

R 2.11.0 is built now for Fedora and EPEL. It is in "updates-testing".

In accordance with the new policies on Fedora Updates, these new
packages will not be pushed as official updates until they either
receive positive testing from users, or sit in updates-testing for two
weeks.

You can help us test these packages, and move them forward. Here's how:

1. Go to the Fedora Updates web application (its real name is "Bodhi"):
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/

Once you're there, click the login blue box at the top left, and login
with your Fedora Account. If you don't have a Fedora Account, you can
skip this step.

2. Click on the link for the Fedora R test update that matches your release:

Fedora 11:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/rpy-2.0.8-2.fc11,R-2.11.0-1.fc11

Fedora 12:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/rpy-2.0.8-2.fc12,R-2.11.0-1.fc12

EPEL-4 (RHEL-4):
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/R-2.11.0-1.el4

EPEL-5 (RHEL-5):
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/R-2.11.0-1.el5

[Fedora-r-devel-list] R-repo

Dear all,

There is a some group of people which is gathering at this moment to
build a RPMs R-repository. 

This repository will be built using R2rpm which mean:
- No -devel subpackage
- Automated spec generation
- Dependencies resolved based on the DESCRIPTION file

We will make sure that the package that don't build have logs available.

At the moment we are trying to put together all the infrastructure. We
have started to build the first packages and are hoping to have the
first generation of the repository in few days.

For those of you who would be interested we have just set up a mailing
list at:
http://www.bioinformatics.org/mailman/listinfo/r-repo-dev
Feel free to join the discussions to make of this project something
useful for all.

Regards,

Pierre
