R-1.3.0 SuSE RPMs

SuSE 7.2 RPMs of R-1.3.0 and the current contrib packages are available at
CRAN (and soon on it's mirrors) at 


RPMs for older SuSE versions will be available at 


soon (not mirrored to CRAN sites).

These packages are NOT compatible with my old SuSE RPMs, (R_HOME is now
(again) /usr/local/lib/R and no more /usr/lib/R, packages are linked with
the libR.so library, contrib packages may require R 1.3.0, ...)

The contrib RPMs and it's SPEC files are automatically generated using the 


script (also available at ftp://ftp-stat.uni-klu.ac.at/pub/R/contrib/).

All (base and contrib) RPMs had to pass "make check" or "R CMD check" to
be built successfully.

Logfiles of the build runs are available in the 7.2/RPMS/i386/build.log
subdirectory. If you want to know why the RPM of some special package is
not available, you may find the reason somewhere in these logfiles (e.g. 
R CMD check did not succeed, some prerequisites are not fulfilled on my
build host, ...)

Instead of providing the SRPM files I put now only the according rpm spec
files into the SPECS subdirectory. This should save much space on CRAN and
its mirrors. Using these spec files and downloading the original sources
from according CRAN paths you can rebuild the RPMs the same way as it
would be possible with the SRPM files.

Best wishes
