That post was here:
and there were no replies that I see. I don't know if Dave got an
offlist reply or is still having the issue. I am copying Dave here to
solicit his comments on any follow up activity he might be able to
offer. The only thing that jumps out at me from his post is the
Version indicated for R.app, which shows:
R 2.9.0 GUI 1.28 Tiger build 32-bit (5395)
which may raise the issue of Tiger versus Leopard builds being used
and that may or may not be relevant.
I am on 10.5.7 and although I build R from source, I have not had any
problems since the OS update. I am running:
R version 2.9.0 Patched (2009-05-25 r48609)
I can also run R.app, albeit I don't use it routinely:
[R.app GUI 1.28 (5413) i386-apple-darwin9.7.0]
