Did you try upgrading to R 2.2.1? I just installed R 2.2.1 with the
latest version of "lme4" and "Matrix", and they loaded fine for me.
Loading required package: Matrix
Loading required package: lattice
R version 2.2.1, 2005-12-20, i386-pc-mingw32
attached base packages:
 "methods" "stats" "graphics" "grDevices" "utils" "datasets"
other attached packages:
lme4 lattice Matrix
"0.98-1" "0.12-11" "0.99-6"
Running Windows XP. (This may be obvious from 'i386-pc-mingw23', but
I'm no sufficiently aware to know.)
Doug Bates has worked very hard to create this, and I for one would
not want to ask him to take the time to make it backward compatible for
those who for whatever reason haven't yet upgraded to R 2.2.1,
especially since for most of us it is fairly easy to upgrade.
