I moved "/usr/lib/" to "/usr/lib/" (it seemed like a broken soft link) and recreated a "/usr/lib/" that linked to "/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/". liviu_at_localhost ~ $ ls -l /usr/lib/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 32 2008-03-18 12:16 /usr/lib/ -> opengl/xorg-x11/lib/

However, the problem was not solved. A rebuilt rgl generates the same error on library load:
> dyn.load("/usr/lib/R/library/rgl/libs/")
Error in dyn.load("/usr/lib/R/library/rgl/libs/") :   unable to load shared library '/usr/lib/R/library/rgl/libs/':   /usr/lib/R/library/rgl/libs/ undefined symbol: glTexCoordPointer

Is there anything else that I could try? mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code. Received on Tue 18 Mar 2008 - 11:42:28 GMT
