hi to everybody :-)
I'm trying to install R on my PowerMac G5 (MacOS 10.5.8) but so far no
From the CRAN I've downloaded version 2.15.0 (what looks me the last
Universal version ready to install). Opened and installed (and deleted
the 64 bit Intel only version) but R crashes as soon as it opens, with
this error message:
Dyld Error Message:
Library not loaded:
Referenced from: /Applications/R.app/Contents/MacOS/R
Reason: no suitable image found. Did find:
no matching architecture in universal wrapper
I did install also gfortran-4.2.3 and tcltk-8.5.5-x11 but it didn't
I tried to install also gfortran-42-5577 but the installer stopped with
this error message (partially translated by me from Italian, as only the
2nd half of the message was in English...):
"you can't install GNU Fortran 4.2.4 for XCode 3.1.4 (build 5577) on
this volume. This package requires XCode 3.1.4 with gcc-4.2 (build 5577)"
I checked and there's a folder in the Applications with this XCode 3.1.4
but again this application too crashes if I try running it... maybe
there's something missing? I've got this G5 2nd hand back in 2011, and
unfortunately the Leopard dvd I've got can only install a previous
(3.1.0 ... I guess, but I should check) version, and from the Apple
website linked at r-project.org there's apparently no way to download
older versions of XCode...
Any idea to get out? I must say I've also quite effortlessly installed R
on my Linux netbook but I'd really like to have it on my PowerMac (and
the bigger screen...).
Sorry for the length of this mail :-)
