Dear R People:

I am trying to put Rmpi with R-2.6.0 on an Ubuntu operating system.

When I do the installation, all is well.

But when I go into R and fire up the library, this is what I get:

> library(Rmpi)
Error in dyn.load(file, ...) :
  unable to load shared library '/home/cms/Desktop/R-2.6.0/library/Rmpi/libs/Rmpi.so':
  /home/cms/Desktop/R-2.6.0/library/Rmpi/libs/Rmpi.so: undefined symbol: lam_mpi_double
Error in library(Rmpi) : .First.lib failed for 'Rmpi'
Error in dyn.unload(file.path(libpath, "libs", paste("Rmpi", .Platform$dynlib.ext,  :
  dynamic/shared library '/home/cms/Desktop/R-2.6.0/library/Rmpi/libs/Rmpi.so' was not loaded

Has anyone experienced this before, please?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
