but really the grid-based hexbin is in the current Bioconductor
(1.6), at least for me,
so I am a little perplexed why Naomi first needs to download it.
I guess, Naomi, you somehow managed to keep an old version of
hexbin around? It may be because getBioC() has changed and
doesn't install "hexbin" anymore AFAIK, unless you explicitly
getBioC("hexbin", lib = ...., destdir = ....)
the need of which I had been wondering about as well..
Also --- probably more a question to the bioconductor-release-managers :
if you had used the above getBioC(..) shouldn't you have gotten
"hexbin" *plus* all the packages it depends on, i.e., in your
case "colorspace" as well?
Naomi, can you tell us *how* you've installed hexbin?
