Dear all,

I tried to install rgl package on my linux machine fc5, I got an error. Here I run R as user,
$ R

> options(repos=c(CRAN="http://cran.at.r-project.org/"))
> install.packages("rgl", lib="/home/subianto/local/lib/R/library/site-packages", dependencies=TRUE)

The downloaded packages are in

I think the error about missing devel-libraries on my fc5 but I do not know which libraries are. I apologize for my poor linux knowledge and expertise. Thank you very much.

Best, Muhammad Subianto
