Hello all,

R2.2.1, W2k

I posted a similar question last week after having problem with a group update (using update.packages()), without getting any answer.

Now I have updated all packages separately, and found that the problem comes from nlme:

Everything comes home, the md5 checksums are ok, but then the old version canīt be removed from my computer, leaving a "nlme" library with only the "libs" sublibrary left.

As my R doesnīt start without nlme, I am stuck here. R doesnīt start with only the "libs" left and doesnīt start without nlme. Whatīs going on?

Itīs no big crisis as I have the nlme version from the R installation file, but I try to keep my installation as updated as possible, so itīs irritating. :)
