hi every body.

Im new in this program. Im traying to install R in linux suse10.0 in two following form:

  1. with the file R-2.5.0.tar.gz
  2. and the rpm file : R-base-2.5.0-2.1.i586.rpm
    • In the first case a) when i uncompressed and type:

linux:/opt/R/R-2.5.0 # ./configure

the followind message is showed

linux:/opt/R/R-2.5.0 # ./configure

linux:/opt/R/R-2.5.0 #

after that i try to do :

linux:/opt/R/R-2.5.0 # make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

i installed : xorg-x11-devel and libpng-devel , suggested by somebody and nothing.

******Affter with b) tray to install with the YAST. It installed without errors, but when i try to run R the following message is showed:

/usr/lib/R/bin/exec/R: error while loading shared libraries: libgfortran.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

then i do

linux:/usr/lib # ln /opt/gnat/lib/libgfortran.so libgfortran.so.0

it also doesnt work.
