[R-sig-Geo] memory issue on R with Linux 64

Hi List,

I get an error using readGDAL{rgdal}: cannot allocate vector of size 3.1 Gb

I am using Linux 64bit (opensuse 11) with 4 gig swap and 4 gig Ram and R 2.8.0. 

The load monitor shows that most of Ram is used up and then when Swap use starts increasing, R returns the error.

Is there anything I should do within R to circumvent this?

Any help appreciated
