Hi Mark --

Your attachment didn't come through; I'd suggest inlining the output.
This is a Bioconductor package so ask on the bioconductor mailing list


Bioconductor packages are usually installed from within R, using

  biocLite() # a 'core' set of packages, or...
  biocLite('ShortRead') # a particular package and dependencies

See the instructions at

Also there is a problem with keys?? when I tried to install a couple of the missing modules. Any tips for the newbie please.
