I've recently started using R and Bioconductor
on an Apple Mac running OS X (10.4). I've been
installing packages from the *nix command line,
one by one, no trouble.
I would like to be able to update using
biocLite from the R gui, but keep getting
system powerpc, darwin8.6.0
svn rev 38247
version.string Version 2.3.1 (2006-06-01)
> biocLite("Biobase", destdir = "/Volumes/KilroyHD/kilroy/Software/BioConductor")
Running getBioC version 0.1.6 with R version 2.3.1
Running biocinstall version 1.8.4 with R version 2.3.1
Your version of R requires version 1.8 of Bioconductor.
trying URL 'http://bioconductor.org/packages/1.8/bioc/bin/macosx/powerpc/contrib/2.3/Biobase_1.10.1.tgz'
Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 1465858 bytes
1: number of rows of result
is not a multiple of vector length (arg 2) in: cbind(1, res0, Repository = repos)
2: cannot create HTML package index in: make.packages.html()
I am using version 1.10.1 of Biobase, I presume this is the
version number for Bioconductor.
I see a few others reporting similar errors
when I google this issue, but I see no posted
solutions. Can anyone see what I am doing wrong,
and is there a solution?
Any info appreciated
