To whom it may concern:

My OS: CentOS 5.5
R version: R-2.11.1

My questions are as follows:
First, I inputted commands:

# ./configure --enable-R-shlib
# make
# make check

Everything goes well until "make check". screen log:

make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/R-2.11.1/tests'
make[2]: Entering directory `/tmp/R-2.11.1/tests'
make[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/R-2.11.1/tests/Examples'

Collecting examples for package 'base'

  Extracting from parsed Rd's ........................................
Running examples in package 'base'
Error: testing 'base' failed
Execution halted
make[3]: *** [test-Examples-Base] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/R-2.11.1/tests/Examples'
make[2]: *** [test-Examples] Error 2

make[1]: *** [test-all-basics] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/R-2.11.1/tests'
make: *** [check] Error 2

I've tried to understand what's going on:

# tail tests/Examples/base-Ex.Rout.fail

screen log:

> ## xz compression is only worthwhile for large objects

Error in memCompress(txt, "x") : internal error 5 in memCompress Execution halted

It seems that the problem is related to xz software, but I've xz installed properly on my system and works fine to me. I am also pretty interested in what "internal error 5" means??

Any idea of this error??

Thank you very much.
