[Bioc-devel] libRblas and libRlapack are broken dependencies for packages in R 3.1.0 on Fedora 20

Let's me quote Ed Borasky <https://support.rstudio.com/hc/communities/public/questions/201046993-Library-dependency-issue-on-Fedora-20->: "When Fedora 20 migrated from R 3.0.2 to R 3.1.0, they switched from using the BLAS and LAPACK shipped with R to the BLAS and LAPACK from Fedora." Tom Callaway, R packager for Fedora, explained that here: <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1074975#c16>

That causes packages depending on libRblas or/and libRlapack to fail installation on Fedora 20 systems running R version 3.1.0. I tried to upgrade some packages to BioConductor 2.14 and all those having those libraries in dependencies failed the upgrade. Platform: x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu (64-bit). The failing packages are:

ChIPseqR, edgeR, IdMappingAnalysis, preprocessCore, RamiGO, RcppArmadillo, affy, DESeq2, DiffBind, oligo, ArrayExpress, gcrma, panp, ReportingTools, vsn, affycoretools, bgx, Ringo, simpleaffy, tilingArray, AgiMicroRna.

Is there any way to solve that issue upstream (R-Core), or will Fedora 20 users have to find workarounds themselves ?
