Hi all,
    I hope this is the correct list to post such a question.
I was trying to install the R-project on Debian and encountered significant 
problems with the same.
   The main problem is the installation of the libc6 package. I need this 
package in order to install the R-core package. However, the libc6 is 
dependent on the libdb1-compat package, which just refuses to install on my 
   I tried to install it yesterday and it ended up crashing my system and 
messing up the old Apache. Does anyone have a procedure to install 
R-project on Debian linux?
The libdb1-compat package version is 2.1.3-7 and the libc6 is 2.3.1-17
Please advise,
