We'd usually want to see an exactly reproducible example, i.e.
x <- ......
eigen (x)
but see below
sharon> I'm running the following R version:
sharon> platform sparc-sun-solaris2.6
sharon> arch sparc
sharon> os solaris2.6
sharon> system sparc, solaris2.6
sharon> status Patched
sharon> major 0
sharon> minor 99.0
sharon> year 2000
sharon> month February
sharon> day 9
sharon> language R
Note that this is not even a released version of R (notice
"Patched"); it is pre version of R 1.0.0,
and nowadays you should not work anymore with R versions <= 0.99
(which BDR calls "beta").
Get 1.1(.0) from any CRAN site!
