Re: [R] Dependence of bundle dse on setRNG (was Misbehaviour of DSE)

As the posting guide says, there is no R 2.1. The first message suggests this is R 2.1.0, and the posting guide does ask you to use the latest version (and to quote versions accurately).

The dse bundle depends on package setRNG, which you have not installed, so you need to do that. Look at e.g.

> library(help=dse2)

which the posting guide actually asks you to do and include in your posting. (And the message you got is pretty clearcut.)

(Suggestion to Paul Gilbert: it would work better to have the setRNG dependence in the top-level DESCRIPTION and not in the dependence for each package. That way install.packages() can work out it is required from the information on CRAN, which is only at bundle level.)
