Hi Carlos,

The underlying cause is probably some C code that makes assumptions
about byte order or alignment that are not true on Solaris SPARC. Since
your code contains no compiled code that points to one of the package's
dependencies. In fact the data.table package also fails on Solaris


So you should contact the maintaner of data.table if you want this
