The main source of information on installation is the `R Installation
and Administration Manual', an HTML copy of which is available as file
`doc/html/R-admin.html'. Please read that before installing R. But
if you are impatient, read on but please refer to the manual to
resolve any problems.
Hint: you are missing the readline development RPMs, and that is covered
in the manual you were asked to read.
