We have been trying to install R-1.0.0 on the department AIX machines
but to no avail. I am forwarding the bug report from our system
administrator to the list. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
BTW, the installation of R-1.0.0 on my linux box at home went like a
Here is the bug report:
Subject: R-1.0.0 and AIX 4.3.2?
I've been having difficulty getting R-1.0.0 to work correctly under
AIX 4.3.2. R-0.90.1 works just fine, but R-1.0.0 dumps core with an
illegal instruction soon after the banner message is displayed upon
odds.stat /home/mean/u19/dgc /opt/R-1.0.0/bin/R

I've tried many permutations of using the AIX C compiler, GCC-2.95.1,
MIT X11, AIX X11, with and without readline, IBM's F77 compiler. They
invariably give the same results -- Illegal instruction on startup.
I've tried with and without saved workspaces (generated by R-0.90.1).
The fact that 0.90.1 compiles and runs fine with identical configure
arguments leads me to believe this may not be a problem on my end, but
is more likely a problem with R-1.0.0.
Has anyone else seen this problem?
Has anyone using AIX 4.3.2 sucessfully compiled a working R-1.0.0?
