Hello all, i'm a newbie of R trying to make some statistical work in R
environment. Now i have to laptops, one is Thinkpad X40 with Debian
Lenny and the other is Thinkpad T43 with Ubuntu 8.10. Recently i met
such problem and am wondering if anybody can do some help.
After upgrading my /etc/apt/sources.list , i install R by apt-get
install command. It works fine in both laptops. Then i tried to install
packages such as JGR and TSA. Problem occured when i installed TSA in my
and i get the following error message:
Loading required package: leaps
Loading required package: locfit
Loading required package: akima
Loading required package: lattice

Loading required package: mgcv

Error: package 'mgcv' could not be loaded
ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'TSA'
** Removing '/usr/local/lib/R/site-library/TSA'
The downloaded packages are in
In install.packages("TSA") :
installation of package 'TSA' had non-zero exit status
The problems is, i used exact the same commands and configuration of R
in both my Debian-X40 and Ubuntu-T43. It works in Debian but not in T43.
Anybody who can help me about how to fix it would be a lot appreciated.
