I suspect R-2.12.0 will be the one for the next OSgeo DVD, unless
there's a 2.12.1 fixup release due imminently.
Some problems installing the packages in the first list:
1: In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
package ‘pkgDepTools’ is not available
? What's that?
3: In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
package ‘Rgraphviz’ is not available
Has this just not been updated for R-2.12 yet?
6: In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
package ‘automaps’ is not available
There's 'automap' but not 'automaps' - is this a typo (or a rename?)
'automap' installs just fine.
Errors 2, 4 and 5 were rgdal not installing because I hadn't got the
-dev package installed.
I've not checked the packages in the packages2 list, but we might
consider adding the 'rworldmap' package to the main list, since this
is supposed to give newbie R users a simple interface to making global
