I cannot seem to get "boot" running. Can anybody help? I've tried downloading and compiling the binary from <http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/boot/index.html>, as well as the below. (Please see the scary-sounding error message, and the sessionInfo.) Neither works.
Any help would be much appreciated.
