I'm having some difficulty installing R on our server which is running
RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 5.2. I'm using RPM (Red Hat Package
Manager) and by default it installs R in /usr/bin. Unfortunately due
to a very small partition size, I have run out of space in this
directory. I was hoping to install R in another location such as
/data. I'm wondering if anyone else has run across this issue and
knows of anyway around it.
