I'm trying to obtain a maximum likelyhood estimate of a gaussian model by the MLE command, as I did with a Poisson model:  

x <- rep(1:2,each=500)
y <- rnorm(length(x), mean=10+3*x, sd=1)  

glm1 <- glm(y ~ x , family=gaussian())  

func1 <- function(alfa=10, beta=3, sigma=1)

    -sum(dnorm(y, mean=alfa+beta*x, sd=sigma), log=FALSE) mle(func1, method = "BFGS")

func2 <- function(alfa=10, beta=3, sigma=1)    

-sum((1/sqrt(2*pi*sigma^2))*exp(-0.5*(((y-alfa-beta*x)^2)/sigma^2))) mle(func2, method = "BFGS")  

I don't understand why it doesn't work.
Have you some suggestions?  

Thank you so much for your help
