Hello folks,

Here's is info on what system I'm working on.
> sessionInfo()

R version 2.13.0 (2011-04-13)
Platform: i686-pc-linux-gnu (32-bit)

I'm trying to install the XML package. However, I end up with the following error message.

> install.packages("XML")
checking for xml2-config... no
Cannot find xml2-config
ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘XML’ * removing ‘/home/abraham/R/i686-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.13/XML’

The downloaded packages are in
Warning message:
In install.packages() :
installation of package 'XML' had non-zero exit status

When I run library(XML), I get that there is no package named XML.

Can anyone help diagnose the problem.

Thank You,
