When RMySQL is loaded in before lme4, the summary() function for lmer objects in the lme4 packages produces the following error:

Error in printMer(object) : no slot of name "status" for this object of class "table"

When RMySQL is loaded AFTER lme4, however, no such error arises. For example, the following code gives the error:

> library(RMySQL)

Loading required package: DBI
> library(lme4)

Loading required package: Matrix
Loading required package: lattice
> data(sleepstudy)
> fm1 <- lmer(Reaction ~ Days + (Days|Subject), sleepstudy)
> summary(fm1)

Error in printMer(object) : no slot of name "status" for this object of class "table"

Now, here is the exact same code except that lme4 is loaded before RMySQL. The summary function works properly.

> library(lme4)

Loading required package: Matrix
Loading required package: lattice
library(RMySQL)> library(RMySQL)
Loading required package: DBI
> data(sleepstudy)
> fm1 <- lmer(Reaction ~ Days + (Days|Subject), sleepstudy)
> summary(fm1)
