The "condor" in question appears to be a top level directory on a PC, not the iconic scavenger that was rescued from extinction in southern California. We will charitably assume that it directs your R script to an R interpreter at the address shown below.

Here is a crucial bit of information.

If we could but see the code contained in "AddTwo.R" (which I strongly suspect is a program to add two numbers), we might be able to fathom the following message.

I'll try a completely uninformed guess at your problem, which is probably appropriate for the completely uninformed question. "AddTwo.R" just might want two numbers as arguments. It adds these two numbers and returns the value. The "Renice..." line in the log file might indicate that the program is assigned low priority, and somehow this default argument has been returned as an error code. Please send your R code to the list and perhaps a more informative answer will be returned.
