I have previously sent a same email to r-help_at_list.r-project.org, however I am not sure if the mailing address has been changed to this one. If the duplicated messages are received twice, I am sorry for that and please delete one of them.

Dear R helper:
When I was trying to install the fCalendar package, R report the following error and then my installation failed:

  RUnit 0.4.17 loaded.
Loading required package: spatial
Loading required package: tcltk
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Loading required package: zoo
Error in .Internal(putenv(x)) : no internal function "putenv" Calls: <Anonymous> ... sys.source -> eval -> eval -> .currentYear -> Sys.setenv Execution halted

ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'fCalendar'
** Removing '/usr/local/lib/R/site-library/fCalendar'

by the way, my system is Ubuntu 7.04,

platform       i486-pc-linux-gnu
arch           i486
os             linux-gnu
system         i486, linux-gnu

I tried to look for putenv myself, R reported that it is a deprecated function in "base" package, I loaded the "base" package and still end up with the same Error report.

Pls do help me.
