Hi together,
we received a question about the bioconductor package,
maybe anybody could help the guy and I will deliver the message over our 
forum to him.
If this way is allowed ...
Regards Knut

Here the question:

I have installed R on a linux machine. I have then installed the 
biocLite.R package from bioconductor.
I wanted to install a few other packages - hgu133plus2cdf, rma .

I downloaded the source files and installed in the directory 

but when i try using those files, they show as not installed.
Anybody encounter this problem before OR is there something else i am 
doing wrong?

Following is the sequence of stpes i used first:
1) library(affy)

2) pcpc <- 

3) pc <- rma(pcpc)

Error in library("hgu133plus2cdf", lib.loc = NULL, character.only = TRUE) :
'hgu133plus2cdf' is not a valid package -- installed < 2.0.0?

I tried all this when logged in as root.

Any help will be appreciated.

thank you all..
