Right you are! I actually have the line...

(load "/tmp/ess-5.2.3/lisp/ess-site")

because I didn't find the 5.2.3 ess rpm right away, but I put the above
above this line and it works!

Thanks for sending the answer in a way that I could understand.

This is more of an emacs question but... how do I get ess to automatically
start in a new frame?

I.e. I usually run ess with M-x R, then open a frame with C-x 2, then flip
buffers until every thing is nice again.

I would like to just open a .R file, type M-x R and be away (with a new
ess frame below the .R file).

P.S. I will add your answer to
