I am up and running on ubuntu.  I have not had to compile anything,
but If I did apt-get build-dep r-base and everything would work fine.
Maybe I am understating this.  You can add some repositories that are

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
