I notice that e.g /home/sguha/lib64 is hard coded into the /bin/R file . I nstalled R as ./configure --prefix=$HOME ...

What i need to do is ship the entire R distribution to remote nodes, and run R. These are shipped to ephemeral directories so I dont know the path ahead of time.

R_HOME doesn't change things either.

So i guess one cant run R on a system unless it's been installed?

  1. I can't install R on the compute nodes using ./configure ....
  2. All nodes do have the same architecture
  3. I would like to stick to the 'shipping' approach.
