[Bioc-devel] error installing bioc 2.2

Today I had some trouble installing the development version of BioC.
The default installation fails for two packages affy and affyPLM.
Looking into the error messages I found that some header files where
missing. I thought it could have something to do with the
preprocessCore package and installed it. This fixed the problem, affy
and affyPLM installed fine then. Looking into their DESCRIPTION files
I found that they have the field "LinkingTo: preprocessCore" which
explains why preprocessCore is needed. The problem is that
preprocessCore is not in the dependencies, and not installed by
default, hence the error in the original attempt.

I guess that the easiest way is to fix this is just to add
preprocessCore to the dependencies.

Best regards,
