Re: [Rd] installing spam package is failing (spam_0.29-1)

For Pete's sake, could you please stop spamming the r-devel list?

We have a dedicated list r-sig-debian for questions related to R on Debian/Ubuntu. Please use it.

And as as far as I can tell, Peter already told you what's up:

   deb http:// oneiric/

Not a valid url. Once you have told apt/dpkg about additional sources, the rest takes care of its own as higher package versions win:

edd_at_max:~$ apt-cache policy r-base-core

  Installed: 2.15.1-1precise2
  Candidate: 2.15.1-1precise2

  Version table:

Dirk, one of several volunteers making sure the above "just works"
