first versions of RPMs of R and its libraries for SuSE 5.3 are available
at CRAN:


I compiled it with gcc and g77 from egcs 1.1b. 

There are still some problems:

  + the "event", "gnlm", ... libraries are missing (g77 complains about  
    wrong declarations)
  + "modreg" does not work (library contains unresolved symbols)
  + "e1071" currently has no support for pgm routines.

But I hope to solve these problems step by step.


Here is the README file from 

R packages for S.u.S.E. Linux

These packages are compiled with egcs 1.1b on S.u.S.E 5.3.

The latest versions are always available at

and mirrored at CRAN under


Libraries (libreadline and libblas) are statically linked, so you need 
no extra packages with shared libraries.

Each package is divided into two parts "R-<name>" with the binaries and files 
needed at runtime and "R-<name>-source" with the appropriate source tree.

If you are not interested in the source tree you can omit all "R-<name>-source"

You will need at least R-x.xx-y.i386.rpm, which contains the base installation
of R (with x.xx.y replaced by the version number from R-x.xx.y.tgz). 
All other libraries from CRAN/contrib have their own packages.


base/         base package
contrib/      library packages
source/       source trees for base and library packages (no source-RPMs!)
all-in-one/   one big package with all libraries and whole source tree
ess/          packages with ESS-mode for GNU Emacs and XEmacs

Of course, you can also find the source-RPMs here (../../SRPMS/). I use them
not only for S.u.S.E. Linux but also for Digital Unix, see

RPMs with egcs 1.1b for S.u.S.E 5.3 are also available at
