How quickly things change!! When I got to look at CRAN, the latest versions were 0.9975-1 of lme4 and 0.9975-2 of Matrix which I tried.

version.string R version 2.4.0 (2006-10-03)

Matrix installs, but with a number of warnings like these:

Warning in matchSignature(signature, fdef, where) :

         in the method signature for function "coerce" no definition for class: "matrix.csr" Warning in matchSignature(signature, fdef, where) :

         in the method signature for function "coerce" no definition for class: "matrix.csr"

When I try to install lme4, it fails with messages like these:

*Installing *source* package 'lme4' ...
** libs
gcc -I/usr/local/R-2.4.0/include -I/usr/local/R-2.4.0/include -I/usr/local/include -fpic -g -O2 -std=gnu99 -c init.c -o init.o In file included from init.c:1:
lme4_utils.h:4:20: error: Matrix.h: No such file or directory In file included from init.c:1:
lme4_utils.h:14: error: syntax error before ��c��

My guess is that the warnings from the Matrix installation were not irrelevant, and that the type of error would indicate to the cognoscenti[1] what could be missing in my installation. If the second part of my guess is not correct, I'll gladly supply more of the messages if the above is insufficient. Of course, I'm open to correction on the first part also.

TIA
