Hi R Users,

I am new to running R on a Linux platform (I'm used to Windows) - I'm running R 2.7.0 on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) as sudo (without Emacs). My architecture is Pentium D (x86_64).

I am having problems successsfully configuring the downloaded package 'udunits'.  When I execute

> install.packages("udunits", lib="/usr/local/lib/R/library")

I get the following result:

trying URL 'http://cran.cnr.Berkeley.edu/src/contrib/udunits_1.3.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 29985 bytes (29 Kb) opened URL

downloaded 29 Kb

The downloaded packages are in

        /tmp/RtmpmhqM2D/downloaded_packages Updating HTML index of packages in '.Library' Warning message:
In install.packages("udunits", lib = "/usr/local/lib/R/library") :   installation of package 'udunits' had non-zero exit status

I have tried downloading the package manually and running ./configure, but with the same result. As the error message suggested, I looked at the file udunits_1.0/udunits/src/Makevars.in, (contents below), but am not sure what to modify.

##PKG_CPPFLAGS=-I/path/to/udunits/header ##PKG_LIBS=-L/path/to/udunits/lib -ludunits
