The CRAN Archive has no listing for an `edgeR`. Perhaps you should review your records to see where and when you got it? ....<google>  oh, there it is .... it's a Bioc package. Furthermore, version 3.0.8 is available and loads without complaint on my 2.15.2 system running under SnowLeopard. Vennerable is on R-Forge. 

My suggestion is for you to exhibit greater effort at searching. Both of these packages show up on the first page of hits when searched for just with their names.
