Hi

I had similar issue which was resolved by ensuring that I have the lib/include folder for readline in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH respectively.

Thanks

Subject: [R] problem to install R on linux

Dear members,

this can sound trivial for some people but I don't have experience on compilation.

I'm trying to install R-2.2.1 on a laptop running Mandriva 2006. I already installed many of the recommended packages/libraries but it seems that something is still missing. The problem is that I cannot identify... Could somebody give me some advise?

I put the output of the command "./configure" bellow. When I tryed to install the R-2.0.0-1mdk.i586.rpm I got:

[root@localhost Download]# rpm -i R-2.0.0-1mdk.i586.rpm
warning: R-2.0.0-1mdk.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6c60ceea
error: Failed dependencies:

        info is needed by R-2.0.0-1mdk.i586
[root@localhost Download]#

Thanks in advance,
AB
