Hi all,

Is it possible to have a test value for assessing the normality of 
residuals from a linear regression model, instead of simply relying on 
I've tried to use fitdistr to try and fit the residuals with a normal 
distribution, but fitdsitr only returns the parameters of the 
distribution and the standard errors, not the p-value. Am I missing
