Dear all,

OS: x86_64-suse-linux 9.2
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz
R-version: R-2.1.0

I've started using a new Linux server, upgraded at the same time to R-2.1.0 (see above) and have problems with some elementary analysis that ran without a problem on my previous configuration.

anova.glm gives the following error:

Error in La.chol2inv(x, size) : lapack routines cannot be loaded

This was with the after the following configure

./configure --with-readline --prefix=/opt/R-2.1.0 --with-libpng --with-jpeglib --with-pcre --without-x

The obvious thing to try next was:

./configure --with-readline --prefix=/opt/R-2.1.0 --with-libpng --with-jpeglib --with-pcre --without-x --with-lapack

but this gave errors at the make:

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.1.0/src/modules/lapack'
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.1.0/src/modules/lapack'

I've found some similar postings about Debian, but without a soluition.

Any idea how I could proceed?
