I have downloaded R 2.5.1. I have installed the packages "Hmisc" and "its" 
using package installer (install location : at system level and then I also 
did i as defined by .libPaths(); I guess it is the same(?)). Typing 
library() shows that the packages have been installed. I then type 
library(Hmisc) and get the following output:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : 
         unable to load shared library 
6): Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libgfortran.2.dylib
  Referenced from: 
  Reason: image not found
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'Hmisc'
When I type library(its) i get the same output (I guess the problem is 
related to Hmisc)

For the sake of comparison I installed the package boot and loaded it 
without problems.

I am new to Mac (I have tiger version) and R as well, but the problem seems 
with R. I hope you can help me. Best regards, Alessio Sancetta
