Re: [Rd] errors in loading packages (PR#9839)

Another way of answering the question: The gmodels and gregmisc package both depend on the gtools package. Either install that first, or tell R to install all dependencies. From the command line:

        install.packages(..., depends=TRUE)

or the equivalent checkbox in the UI.
