can you please describe what did you do exactly?  Which commands did
you use in order to redirect the output to a file?

It sound like you have forgotten to call dev.off().
Look ?dev.off

 | Hi there.
 | as a newbie I figured out the basics of R but when it came to graphic 
 | output it was a bad surprise.
 | All but the X11 device do not function properly. Most of them generate 
 | an empty file and pdf() produces non valid output (gs and acroread as well).
 | Very annoying, because I have to write a report.
 | I got the recent stable binary rpm (v1.6.2) from CRAN on a SuSE Linux 8.1.
 | Any help?
 | CU
