The Bioconductor developing team is working with
R devel for the devel version of Bioconductor (2.0,
to be released in April 2007 just a few days after
R 2.5.0 will be released).
And the Bioconductor developing team has been working
with R 2.4.0, a widely distributed R version, for the
preparation of the current release of Bioconductor (1.9).
This doesn't mean you can't use Bioconductor 2.0 packages
with R 2.4.0, it just means that we can make no guarantee that
they will work due to some possible incompatibilities between
R 2.4.0 and current R devel. But nobody prevents you to try:
1) start R 2.4.0
5) repo <- 'http://bioconductor.org/packages/2.0/bioc'
6) install.packages('makePlatformDesign', repo=repo, dep=TRUE)
9) expect some breakage since you are using a package
still in development and on the wrong platform (R 2.4.0
instead of R devel)
10) if something goes wrong, please help us to help
you by providing some usefull output
