Message-id: <p06100501bcc2ed74ea21@[10.0.1.2]>

I've downloaded and installed R 1.9.0 under OS X 10.3.3. I then
removed my previous R 1.8.0 installation by following the
instructions in the readme file, e.g.,

1. drag the "StartR" icon into the Trash;

2) go inside your Home directory and search for the Library folder.
Inside the Library folder in your Home directory you'll
find a RAqua directory: drag the RAqua folder into the Trash:

3) empty the Trash.

and I removed the directory /usr/local/lib/R and the file
/usr/local/bin/R as instructed.

R 1.9.0 will start up from the applications window. Since I usually
run R using Xemacs and X11, I used the following commands (under zsh)
to set up a symbolic link:

> sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R /usr/local/bin/R

which gives me an error that the file /usr/local/bin/R does not
exist, which of course, it doesn't as I deleted it as described
above. R will start up fine if I use
> /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R

In addition, usr/local/bin does exist and is on the search path.

> echo $PATH
>/sw/bin:/sw/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/brianbeckage:/usr/X11R6/bin:.:/Users/brianbeckage/bin:/usr/local/bin

How do I correctly set up the symbolic link?

Thanks for you help,
Brian
