I presume that the Linux message does not refer to DLLs? :-)

I can run example(lm.influence) and example(influence.measures) without issue on:

  R version 2.6.1 Patched (2007-11-26 r43541)

on an F8 Linux system.

I don't see anything immediately obvious in the NEWS file for 2.6.1 patched to suggest that something has changed here.

Can you provide a reproducible example here and/or try to upgrade to patched?

I would also try to run:

  R --vanilla

from the command line to provide a clean environment to be sure that none of the other packages that you are loading are causing conflicts.

HTH, Marc Schwartz
