Hi Ioannis and Paolo,

As Ioannis recommends getting the last R source (R-2.2.1) is better and does not require much effort.
If you want the compilation to go smoothly on Mandriva 2006 you should first use drakconf to download and install:

gfortran
readline
blas

which are not installed by default by the powerpack (or free) distribution.

Then follow the basic Unix/Linux intructions (to compile from sources) on the R Installation and Administration Manual (ie, "tar -xvzf R-2.2.1.tar.gz", "cd R-2.2.1", "./configure", "make", "make check", "make install").

Mandriva 2006 uses gcc-4.0.1, etc. On my machine (Intel PIV) all the tests went fine.

Christophe.
