Other things to try (aside from make check):

  1. Make sure you are "root" before you say "make install".
  2. Check to see that the packages really got installed, after "make install": ls /usr/local/lib/R/ (should have several directories)
  3. Open a new terminal window before you type "R". (Sometimes that matters.)
  4. Look at config.log. The make may not have even worked. There are many dependencies. Sometimes you need other programs, as described in the installation and administration manual.
