In the R-2.3.0 directory, what do you get if you type bin/R? Does R starts up OK, or do you get an error? What were the last few lines of output from running configure?

 Still the same problem after the changes

  I have downloaded R-2.3.0.tar.gz for Linux 64 bit processor

  1. tar -zxvf R-2.3.0.tar.gz
  2. changed the directory to the newly created directory R-2.3.0
  3. Typed ./configure
  4. Typed make
  5. Make check
  6. make check-all
  7. Typed make install
  8. Typed R

Fatal error: unable to open the base package

I get the error message.

make[4]: *** No rule to make target `../../src/library/base/all.R', needed by `base-Ex.Rout'. Stop.

make[4]: Leaving directory `/root/downloads/R-2.3.0/tests/Examples'

make[3]: *** [test-Examples-Base] Error 2

It's always a good idea to do

  make check

or even

  make check-all

before make install. If the build does not pass the checks, there's no

point in installing. (I've run into successful builds that failed the

checks several times before.)
