Re: [R] Compiling R 2.4.0 in ubuntu/linux

use synaptic or apt-get to get readline and readline-dev, you also do not need f2c as there is a real fortran, so use synaptic/apt-get to get gfortran and use the following syntax when running ./configure:

env F77=/usr/bin/gfortran-4.0 ./configure

I have Ubuntu Edgy and the above works with almost any R, not only 2.4.0

Best,
Oleg

PS. This is not a question for R-devel :)
