I am new to r and mclust.

I have version 1.7.1 of r, precompiled for Classic Mac OS (I am running 9.2.2 on a PowerBook G4).
I downloaded the precompiled version 2.0-2 of mclust for Classic MacOS.

It appears (from the example I was using below) that I need a library called lapackLib.  There does not appear to be a precompiled version at CRAN.  There is a makefile for lapackLib, to use with MPW.  I wondered if a compiled version might exist somewhere else.  I do not have MPW (although I could download this from Apple's site).  It has been a LONG time since I have used this and imagine it will be painful to get back up to speed.

Attaching package 'mclust':

	The following object(s) are masked from package:base :


>  data(iris)
> irisMatrix <- as.matrix(iris[,1:4])
> irisClass <- iris[,5]
> irisMclust <- Mclust(irisMatrix)
> plot(irisMclust,irisMatrix)

make a plot selection (0 to exit):
1:plot: BIC 
2:plot: Pairs 
3:plot: Classification (2-D projection) 
4:plot: Uncertainty (2-D projection) 
5:plot: All
