I have recently started using R and want to use the quantreg (and sparseM) packages.

I downloaded the .tar files for each, and placed the subsequent folders into the library folder in the frameworks/R.framework/ resources/library folder with all the other packages.

When I try to load either package from the package manager window I get:

Loading required package: SparseM
Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :

        unable to load shared library '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/ Versions/2.4/Resources/library/SparseM/libs/i386/SparseM.so':

   dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.4/Resources/ library/SparseM/libs/i386/SparseM.so, 6): Library not loaded: / Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.5/Resources/lib/libgfortran. 2.dylib

   Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.4/ Resources/library/SparseM/libs/i386/SparseM.so

   Reason: image not found
In addition: Warning messages:
1: package 'quantreg' was built under R version 2.5.0 2: package 'SparseM' was built under R version 2.5.0

any ideas? I assumed at first that sparseM was required for quantreg but neither will load.
