I am grateful for the advice of Douglas Bates on my earlier problem in making
R-0.62.1, but I'm afraid I'm still having problems....
I have been installing the various updates to R for quite some time on my
alpha, and it is only now that I have been having really severe problems.
The three or 4 versions before 0.61.1 installed without error. For 0.61.1 I
needed to install GNU make.
For 0.62.2 I have so far needed to
(a) edit the Makefile in src/graphics, as mentioned in my previous email
(b) edit the config.site to give a -fpe3 flag to the DEC f90 compiler (this
is more a precaution in case of fp exceptions in the fortran code)
(c) edit the Makeconf file to explicitly give "-nofor_main -fpe3" flags to
f90 in LDCMD (because it doesn't seem to be accepted when put in
(d) install GNU install (suggested by Douglas Bates)
this then produces a successful "make"
Following my previous practice I then make a symbolic link to R from
/usr/local/bin. However when I then run R I get.
Error: memory exhausted
> a <- c(1,2,3,4)
 1 2 3 4
Error: Object ".Library" not found
Error: Object ".lib.loc" not found
I don't recall having this before.
Obviously it is unable to find various things. So I thought something might
have changed from previous versions, so I did "make install" which I have
tended not to do before. When I did this I
got group/ownership errors with tar and the make failed. So then (following
the previous patterns) I installed GNU tar. "make install" then worked
fine, But I still get the same problems when trying to run R.
I think I'm almost there....Any ideas ?
