Re: [R] compiling rgdal package on windows / macos

I just tried the Packages>Install package(s).. menu item on my fresh R-2.4.0-patched and rgdal just shows up on the list of packages to install, so I am not sure what the problem is. Alternatively, you can download the Windows *.zip file from any CRAN repository and install it from your hard drive.

Hope this helps,

Andy

Greetings:

As I am not a windows user, I cannot try this: is it possible to install rgdal
on windows without having to compile it from source ?

Compilation on MacOS is within my abilities, however each time i try and install the rgdal package it dies complaining that it cannot find gdal-config --- which was recently installed with GRASS. I have updated my PATH environment variable, logged out, but R still cannot find the gdal-config program.

any tips on getting the rgdal package up and running on MacOS or Windows would
be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
