[Bioc-devel] Error in texi2dvi when processing Sweave .tex file

Hi, Seth, 

Thank you. I downloaded and installed the latest developer beta version of
R, 2.2.0 Beta (and you're right, I needed to do that anyway; that was next
on my list, after verifying that my package works under the latest patched
released version). However, working within 2.2.0 Beta did not fix anything:
I still get the same error messages. 

I also tried the MiKTeX modifications for R from the R-tools page link:
specifically, putting MiKTeX's texinfo package into e-TeX Compatibility
mode. Again, no change in results. 

I will now move this to R-devel, as you suggest. Thanks again!

= Peter

Getting a working development setup for R on Windows can be a real

I believe some improvements were made in the about-to-be-released version of
R (2.2.0) that make it work more seamlessly with a MiKTeX install.

If you are preparing a package for contribution to Bioconductor, you will
need to be working with this version of R anyhow.

Also, R-devel may be a better forum for further questions regarding
configuration of a working Windows devel setup.  That's were the experts
are, anyhow :-)
