Dear R users:
Maybe it is a silly question, but I'm don't understand what am I doing
wrong (I make the same steps, and it works).
In a new karmik koala ubuntu installation I compile the last patched
2.10.1 version of R (r51070).
Every thing was right (I install all the dev libraries I need).
First I type:
And I obtain:
R is now configured for i686-pc-linux-gnu Source directory: .
Installation directory: /usr/local
C compiler: gcc -std=gnu99 -g -O2
Fortran 77 compiler: gfortran -g -O2
C++ compiler: g++ -g -O2
Fortran 90/95 compiler: gfortran -g -O2
Obj-C compiler: gcc -g -O2
Interfaces supported: X11, tcltk
External libraries: readline, ICU
Additional capabilities: PNG, JPEG, TIFF, NLS, cairo
Options enabled: shared R library, shared BLAS, R profiling,
Recommended packages: yes
Then I type "make",
sudo make install.
Then when I try to call R it shows me this message:
Fatal error: unable to open the base package
But if I work as superuser, like "sudo R", everything works fine.
I understand that it is a privileges issue, but where and how can I fix
Thank you for your help.
Sorry for the newbee question.
