Just for the record:

I tested compilation on another Fedora 10 installation:

  1. fresh installation from the installation DVD (Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso instead of the harddisk installation based on the the live CD)
  2. online patches and updates
  3. install of Java 386 packages instead of Java x64 because sunstudio installer did not run with default Java (was the same with the life CD)
  4. downloaded R-devel svn rev 47981; rsync-recommended
  5. PATH to sunstudio appended to default PATH in .bashrc; like described in R-admin, note however that IMHO it should be "suncc" instead of "csunc" -- a typo in R-admin.texi ??
  6. configure
  7. make

=> everything compiled fine with the exception of Matrix which breaks with exactly the same error message as my former report.

I got exactly the same.

Not yet for me with Sun Studio 12; however everything was fine when switching back to the Gnu compilers.

As said, just for the record. The installation was intended for checking our own packages which now compile well with both compilers.
