If you go to http://www.rpmfind.net/ and search for libg2c.so.0, it

Subject: [R] R 1.8.1 on SUSE 9.0


I recently did a full install of SUSE 9.0 and want to get R up and
running.  An attempted install of R-base-1.8.1-1.i586.rpm resulted in:

error: Failed dependencies:
        libg2c.so.0 is needed by R-base-1.8.1-1

And a ./configure in the source directory of R-1.8.1 failed with

configure: error: Neither an F77 compiler nor f2c found

I guess SUSE 9.0 does not come with the required fortran
libraries/compilers.  Can someone point me in the direction of packages
I need to install to get R running (either by installing the binaries or
compiling from source)?  Thanks to all.
