Please consider subscribing to the r-sig-debian list and asking there.

In a nutshell:

i)   add one line to /etc/apt/sources.list
ii)  run 'sudo apt-get update'
iii) run 'sudo apt-get install r-base'

and you have a shiny new R 2.8.1 for Debian testing. [ Which right now you
could also take from Debian unstable but that isn't always possible. ]

The CRAN service is a good one, thanks to Vincent, Michael (for Ubuntu) and
Johannes for Debian to keep it running smoothly.


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
