I was trying to install the package Rmpi on a hpc cluster running SGE. The command, and the sessionInfo() is as follows:

> install.packages("Rmpi",dependencies=TRUE) also installing the dependency ‘rsprng’

The downloaded packages are in

Is there something else that I need to do to install this, and other parallel R packages?
