Dear R-devel list members,

after having contacted Douglas Bates (author of package Matrix) he suggested to ask this list for assistance with the following problem:

After having under

> version

platform sparc-sun-solaris2.9

arch     sparc
os       solaris2.9

system sparc, solaris2.9
major 1
minor 9.1
year 2004
month 06
day 21
language R

successfully installed the Matrix package

> packageDescription( "Matrix")

Package: Matrix
Version: 0.8-10
Date: $Date: 2004-07-07 13:23:11 -0500 (Wed, 07 Jul 2004) $ ...
Packaged: Wed Jul 7 14:22:56 2004; bates Built: R 1.9.1; sparc-sun-solaris2.9; 2004-08-18 14:25:48; unix -- File: /usr1/soft/R-1.9.1/lib/R/library/Matrix/DESCRIPTION

by using

> options(CRAN = "http://cran.r-project.org/")
> install.packages("Matrix")

the attempt to load the library failed:

> library( Matrix)

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : unable to load shared library
"/usr1/soft/R-1.9.1/lib/R/library/Matrix/libs/Matrix.so":   ld.so.1: /usr1/soft/R-1.9.1/lib/R/bin/R.bin: fatal: relocation error: file /usr1/soft/R-1.9.1/lib/R/library/Matrix/libs/Matrix.so: symbol isinf: referenced symbol not found
Error in library(Matrix) : package/namespace load failed

Are we missing anything obvious? Is anybody able to point me to a solution?
(We do not have the problem on a Linux machine, so it does not seem to be an installation error made by us, but is apparently due to our Solaris system libraries.)

Thank you for any help!

 Best regards -- Gerrit
