[Rd] Problem with gsl package

ink1">Hi all,
I am new to R and am writing after having contacted Robin Hankin, who maintains the R gsl wrapper.  

I am trying to use an AFNI (neuroimaging analysis) program that depends on the R gsl package. When I try to use the script I wrote, I get an error that led me to suspect the gsl package was a culprit. When I do library("gsl") within R, I get:

Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :

  unable to load shared library
'/home/matt/R/lib64/R/library/gsl/libs/gsl.so':

  /home/matt/R/lib64/R/library/gsl/libs/gsl.so: undefined symbol: gsl_sf_expint_En_e

Error: package/namespace load failed for 'gsl'  

It looks like it is due to where my Linux (not R) gsl package is installed. Robin thought the problem is that I had to install my Linux gsl package in a nontypical location (it's in /usr) because /usr/local is not available to us.  

He mentioned that others have had this problem. Has anyone been able to surmount this problem?
Thanks,

Matt  

PS. I'm running Suse Linux 10.3:

Linux ghidra 2.6.22.19-0.1-default #1 SMP 2008-10-14 22:17:43 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
