I have just upgraded my ess via melpa, and my ability to run R remotely
I had been doing so via the function (after earlier help from this list
(defun Rcpu ()
"Run R on CSD3"
(let ((inferior-ess-r-program "/home/me/bin/R.csd3")
(ess-directory "/ssh:me using cpu:~/"))
R.csd3 is actually a bash script, that loads some modules required to
run R on the remote host before starting a recent version of R. It
worked this morning, then I did an update of packages, restarted emacs,
and it broke.
Now when I M-x Rcpu I get the error
Error (ess): /home/me/bin/R.csd3 could not be found on the system. Try
running `R-newest' instead, which searches your system for R.
M-x R-newest starts /usr/bin/R on the remote system which is woefully
out of date and won't let me install many current packages.
I have looked into R-newest and I wonder whether the change is this one
know to look on the remote server?
Thanks for any advice,
