I've successfully installed und updated some contributed R packages (R
version 1.2.2 on Debian Linux, logged in as a normal user), but I'm
wondering about this:
Could not open /usr/lib/R/doc/html/packages.html at
/usr/lib/R/share/perl/R/Rdlists.pm line 238.
/usr/lib/R/bin/INSTALL: /usr/lib/R/doc/html/search/index.txt: Permission
/usr/lib/R/bin/INSTALL: LibIndex: Permission denied
$ ls -l /usr/lib/R/library/LibIndex
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 410 Feb 27 23:42
$ ls -l /usr/lib/R/doc/html/search/index.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 124212 Feb 27 23:42
It's possible to load the package with e.g.
but all installed contributed packages are not listed
Packages in library `/usr/lib/R/library':
base The R base package
ctest Classical Tests
eda Exploratory Data Analysis
lqs Resistant Regression and Covariance Estimation
modreg Modern Regression: Smoothing and Local Methods
mva Classical Multivariate Analysis
nls Nonlinear regression
splines Regression Spline Functions and Classes
stepfun Step Functions, including Empirical Distributions
tcltk Interface to Tcl/Tk
ts Time series function
The packages are in their correct location (e.g.
/usr/lib/R/library/MASS/). Maybe I have to change the permission of the
above mentioned files manually and reinstall?
