I've been using R for a while under Mac OS X, which thanks to the R
on OS X developers, is probably the best platform for learning R. I
recently built a Linux box with a Pentium D processor, and am running
an AMD64 port of Ubuntu with the SMP kernel.
After setting up the basics on the box, I thought I'd install R as
well. I've had a very hard time finding good documentation on some
configure flags/options for compiling a 64-bit version of R on
Linux. I thought this was very strange, considering Linux is
apparently the R developer's platform of choice.
Can anyone point me to some good build instructions for 64-bit R
under Linux? Should I compile it against any additional libraries
for better performance?
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
