Please copy your messages to the r-sig-mac list.

I am afraid that 'it did not work' provides no information useful for  

Please explain how it fails.  What did you try to do?  Have you tried  
invoking the command 'R' in a Terminal window?  If that works, then  
the problem is with the GUI, and if that is crashing there should be  
entries in the crash logs (see Apple's troubleshooting procedures)
