[R-SIG-Mac] Problem with library(CarbonEL) in .Rprofile

[I asked on r-help, but got no reply, so I am trying again here,
probably this list is more appropriate]


I am a Mac user and prefer the quartz device. So far, I have always
typed the following in manually after starting R via ESS:


That works without problems, and allows me to use the quartz device
instead of X11.

I put this into my .Rprofile, thinking that this way I don't have to
type this every time I start R. Once I do this (there is nothing else
in the .Rprofile), I get the following error, though:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : 
	unable to load shared library '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/CarbonEL/libs/ppc/CarbonEL.so':
  dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/CarbonEL/libs/ppc/CarbonEL.so, 6): Symbol not found: _TransformProcessType
  Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/CarbonEL/libs/ppc/CarbonEL.so
  Expected in: flat namespace
Error in library(CarbonEL) : .First.lib failed for 'CarbonEL'

What do I need to do to get this to work?



Mac OS X 10.4.10 on a G5
R 2.3.1
CarbonEL 0.1-3
