I'm trying to install R under Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy; Linux
2.6.22-15-generic x86_64). Following the instructions at
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/README, I installed r-base,
r-base-core, and r-base-dev without any problems. When I open R,
however, I get the message "Can't open /usr/lib64/R/etc/ldpaths".
That file is linked to /etc/R/ldpaths, which doesn't exist on my system.
root# ls -l /usr/lib64/R/etc/ldpaths
2008-09-24 13:44 /usr/lib64/R/etc/ldpaths -> /etc/R/ldpaths
root# ls /etc/R
In fact, there doesn't appear to be an 'ldpaths' file anywhere, other
than a link to /etc/R/ldpaths from another directory.
root# find / -name 'ldpaths' -print
root at tabby:~# ls -l /usr/lib/R/etc/ldpaths
2008-09-24 13:44 /usr/lib/R/etc/ldpaths -> /etc/R/ldpaths
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
