Hi Folks,

I'm new to the linux world and am having some trouble installing the RSQLite package.
SQLite is installed, but some dependencies(?) seem to be missing. Can anyone help?

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

> install.packages()
Installing package(s) into ‘/home/abraham/R/i686-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.13’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL '
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/cran/src/contrib/RSQLite_0.9-4.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 1298948 bytes (1.2 Mb) opened URL

downloaded 1.2 Mb

This is my output and the terminal freezes at this point.

The RSQLite files are installed but I can't get them work in R when I run library(RSQLite)

> library(RSQLite)
Loading required package: DBI
Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) : shared object 'RSQLite' not found
In addition: Warning message:
In loadNamespace(package, c(which.lib.loc, lib.loc), keep.source = keep.source) :
package 'RSQLite' contains no R code
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'RSQLite'

Thanks for the help,
