I am trying to install the genetics package on a server with Linux,
Fedora. I installed it in a PC and worked fine.
In a server since I am not used with R, I am not sure what do I need to
change so genetics pkg can see some package dependencies:
Any suggestion is appreciated, Aldi
genetics expects gregmisc and mvtnorm to be installed already. gregmisc
creates gdata etc dependencies.
So here is what I have done:
Retrieved the base R and installed and compiled it with make under :
Under it directories:
Installed mvtnorm and gregmisc with no problem, but genetics is not
recognizing the location of /gregmisc/gdata
The command I am using to install genetics package is the following:
../bin/R CMD ../bin/INSTALL genetics_1.1.0.tar.gz
Here is the problem:
genetics at genxeon1:/users/genetics/aldi/r/R-2.0.0/genetics% ../bin/R CMD
../bin/INSTALL -l . genetics_1.1.0.tar.gz
* Installing *source* package 'genetics' ...

Error in loadNamespace(i[], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), keep.source) :
