Re: [Rd] troubles installing SJava for R

It seems the version of SJava you used needs updating. (install.R was deprecated long ago, formally so in 2.3.0, and R_PPStackTop was never part of the API.)

Please do as the R posting guide asked you to, and contact the maintainer. (It also asked you not to report on obselete versions of R.)

SJava is part of the Omegahat project, and that has its own mailing list: R-devel is not appropriate.

'linux' is too vague here. My guess is that you are using R compiled as a shared library using a compiler that support visibility attributes.
