Dear All,
I am trying to write my first R package and I bump into loading shared library problem( working on Mac OS X 10.4.10 as well as Linux Ubuntu). I want to makes use of (incorporate) a shared library matchinglib.so in the package. Library was created via R CMD -SHLIB. Following 'Writing R Extensions' I place matchinglib.so in the 'libs' directory and use NAMESPACE file with an entry: useDynLib(matchinglib)

Now, executing 'R CMD check mypackage' I face the following error on OS X:

It looks like this package has a loading problem: see the messages for details.

The same problem occurs under Linux.

Shall I specify a direct path to libs or modify NAMESPACE?
