Hi, all,

This is interesting, since the problem I posted on a week ago was resolved by downloading (the current versions of) R and ctv from the Austria site; the UCLA site, from which I had downloaded before, had an old version of R labeled as the current version, and it was not compatible with the version of ctv that they had.

Moral of story: It's not just the Statlib site that is (or at least can be) unreliable.

Is it common knowledge that there are other "mirrors" which do not provide a very good reflection?

Regards,
Mark A.

  1. It was the Statlib mirror from which I was downloading. If I don't get any more interesting messages before I return to work in the morning, I'll try installing off of a different mirror.
  2. On general principles, I just updated the lme4 related packages on the SuSE 10 machine that I run at home (NC mirror). That worked fine.

Which CRAN mirror? The Statlib one has been acting up lately.
