Thanks for that information. It knocks my theory on the head. Pity that, because I might have been able to do something about it if that was the problem. Now I'm at a loss to work out why lme4 installation cannot find Matrix, and more strangely, why nothing else gave a similar problem. I think I've tried every version of lme4 and Matrix that has emerged since R-2.4.0 has been released.

The fact that no other Red hat user has a problem indicates the problem is this end; but I'm short of ideas about where to look. Looks like it's back to versions 6 months old -- like proprietary software users have to put up with. :-(
