^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is an older rpm that Michele Alzeta contributed for Mandrake 10.0 (and that was a long time ago, before Mandrakesoft merged with Connectiva to become Mandriva). And it is for R-2.0.0

In my experience with Mandrake distros, I have found it is easy to download the most recent sources and compile your own version of R.

                                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Unless you have a typo, this is also an older version of R. Get the newer sources and recompile. I don't know if Michele is still active in maintaining R for Mandrake. But he has a site for R and Mandrake in italian and this may provide some first clues.
