Hello UseRs,

I've just tried to load the lme4 package and got the error message, "function 'cholmod_l_start' not provided by package 'Matrix'".  I downloaded the latest version of lme4 and its required packages (lattice and Matrix) as suggested in the archives and still got this message.  The FAQ and archives suggested to check the R version requirements, but I'm already using the latest available version of R, 2.8.1.  I'm using Windows XP Professional.

Thanks for any help,
Megan Davies
