I am trying to install the gls package (a wrapper for GNU scientific library special functions) package under Ubuntu 5.10. I have gls-bin (the debian GNU Scientific Library binary package). When I try to install the R package, I receive the following.

> install.packages("gsl",dependencies=T)
Warning in install.packages("gsl", dependencies = T) :

         argument 'lib' is missing: using /usr/local/lib/R/site-library trying URL 'http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/src/contrib/gsl_1.6-6.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 50969 bytes opened URL



downloaded 49Kb

as if the gls-bin package were absent. Any insights? Thanks in advance,
