Re: [R] R configuration is not finding the installed f2c cross-compiler

Actually up to last Friday, I have run R version 2.6.0 on Linux/SuSE 10.3 with no problem.
I cannot remember how I bypassed the Fortran compiler requests when I installed R 2.6.0
I am sure I never had to specify anything manually. I am not aware of Fortran compilers on Linux/SuSE installation kit. But I will check.
Thank you.

Best regards,
Maura
