Re: [R] Installing packages...

Here's my guess - you are probably missing some programs necessary to build the packages. First, make sure you install Xcode from either the Apple website or the Tiger disc (good time to install X11 if you don't have it too). Then be sure to check the check box in the apple package gui that downloads and install dependencies. Try opening terminal and typing 'which gcc' If it's not there, I believe the above should fix everything! (but still try the above if it is there...)

best wishes,
Vince
