I have been trying to install the new, patched R 2.1.0a along with the Rcmdr on my mac. I got the basic R package installed, but in Project Manager, the tcltk package will not install.

  When I downloaded the Rcmdr binary package from the Berkeley site, it did not show up on the package installer list until a second attempt, but it still does not show up on the package manager list.

On the package manager list, the tcltk package is listed as ''not installed'. When I click on it to install, it won't. I tried the library(tcltk) command, which failed.

The following is the output from the last command:

> library(Rcmdr)

Loading required package: tcltk
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :

I am NOT a developer, but an application-oriented grad student.

I'd appreciate any help that will make Rcmdr work.

Thanks,
