Re: [R] tcltk package problems (R 2.2.0, SuSE 10)

i also had a problem getting 2.2.0 to work with tcltk on SuSE 10.0... and with compiling R from source on SuSE 10.0.

on getting tcltk to work:

i ended up taking source for tcl and tk from
and recompiling; once you unpack the tar.gz the install instructions are in the directory /unix for both programs. after that then

> capabilities()

shows tcltk is TRUE and it works fine. i'm not sure if this was the easiest solution, but it worked.

on getting SuSE 10 to compile R from source: i was unable to use Yast to get a fortran compiler and ended up recompiling gcc to include gfortran from the source (at e.g. ) if you want some more detailed instructions feel free to mail me.

best regards and good luck.
