[R-SIG-Mac] R crash on startup in OS X

I've started from scratch with R 2.9.2 and now have R.app in my Applications folder.
The Framework folder is in the proper place and I can find the libR.dylib file using Finder. However, when I run the command in Terminal that Simon suggested it returns this error, even though the path is correct and the file is there:
file: cannot open (/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.9/Resources/lib/
libR.dylib: cannot open (/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.9/Resources/lib/
Sorry this is a pain... any other suggestions?!

Hmm ... so I'm not sure what just happened since it wasn't there
before (did you reinstall just now or something?).
I see Simon just responded to you, so definitely do what he suggests,
but it seems something is wonky.
To minimize the back and forths, you might consider trashing the R.app
you have in your *Academic* folder and reinstalling the R version you
like from the appropriate *.dmg/*.pkg (eg. the new 2.10 RC is up at r.research.att.com
if you're interested in that).
If I recall correctly, the installer should put a new R.app in your /
Applications folder. You should be able to move that wherever you like
if you really don't want it there and it should "just work".
