You give us very little to go on here.  The most likely explanation is 
that X11 was not found when you installed R (perhaps because you don't 
have the -devel RPMs installed?)

What happens when you run R and do

> x11()

?  A graphics window should pop up, or you should get an informative error 

To help you further we need to know

- the version of R and the distribution of Linux
- how you installed R (from the sources, RPMs etc)
- the logs of the installation.
