I did do that. Most practical is to get the R-devel from the
repositories. It is the wrong version, will bring what you need to build
regarding other dependencies. Then remove R-devel and you can get your
2.8.1 sources from CRAN.
Not sure about the exact names of the things. Now happy on Suse 11.1
after a brief fling with the Fedora 10.
