Re: [R] about memory

Yes, you may need more memory unless you can somehow free a good amount of RAM or find a more memory-efficient method for clustering. If I'm reading it correctly, R wanted to allocate about 382 MB memory on top of what it had already taken but your computer had only about 98 MB swap plus about 1 MB RAM left to give.
