[BioC] Installing problems of Flow Cytometry on Ubuntu

Hi Philipp,

You can get devel versions of R at 
ftp://ftp.stat.math.ethz.ch/Software/R/. I believe the idea has always 
been that BioC devel (i.e., 2.6) works with R devel; iFlow is in BioC 
2.6 so that should work.

However, iFlow may not necessarily need the latest R. I haven't tried 
the latest version but I have been playing with iFlow back in 2009 using 
R 2.9 or so. You can install iFlow from sources from the SVN repository 
(https://hedgehog.fhcrc.org/bioconductor/trunk/madman/Rpacks) user 
readonly, password readonly. To install it, run the R CMD INSTALL <path 
to your iFlow>. The only pain with this approach is that you will have 
to manually resolve all the dependencies. Good luck.
