Have been lurking on the list for a while, I have noticed recently two
1 There seem to be problems with installing R on SuSe Linux
version 5.3. As the list only gets problems and doesn't log the
successes, has anyone successfully loaded R on SuSe 5.3? Is this a
feature of 0.62.3 only or do the problems apply also to earlier versions.
2 There was a list of outstanding problems from Jim Lindsey that
have appeared in 0.62.3 that were not there on 0.62.1.
I need to upgrade from RH4.1 Linux and was proposing to use SuSe once the
YasT English problem is solved. Upgrading is always quite a
time-consuming affair, particularly as I will copy /usr/local, /home and
/etc and rebuild completely.
So my question is, what R to load? I still have 0.50 on my system and
need to upgrade, given that I will use SuSe 5.3. Would you suggest I:
a Load 0.62.3, the latest version
b Load 0.62.1, which works with Jim's libraries
c Wait a little for 0.62.3+x next release which will have these
BTW can I suggest, after the recent RSS News article, that all
publications should reference the software used. This should help to
promote R and to ensure that the valuable support from all the
institutions is retained since citations indexes would show how much it
was used. The correct reference for R was on the list a little while ago.
