  Only if you give us some kind of clue about what precisely is not working. What version of R are you using (post results of sessionInfo() ) , what repository did you choose when prompted, do you have a working internet connection, *exactly* what error message appeared ... ?

  (Hint: I got "package ‘globaltest’ is not available". When I did

library(sos) ## install this if necessary findFn("mlogit")

  I found that there was an mlogit package, which installed fine for me.)

  (Hint #2: it appears that globaltest is in Bioconductor. You might want to post this query on the bioconductor mailing list.) mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code. Received on Sun 06 Jun 2010 - 18:51:06 GMT
