If I knew what a segfault was, I might be able to be more helpful. 
Do any of you folks know what might’ve happened? I’ve d/l’d and installed the 3.4.1. Mac binary from CRAN three times, and each time I get the text below.
Any help will be appreciated; let me know if I can include anything else. A sysinfo() is out of the question, since my owly option is how I want to quit R. The only guess I have is that I don’t have enough memory installed. 
Main system info: 
MacOS Sierra v. 10.12.8; 27” iMac, late 2013; 3.4GHz Core i%; 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
Thanks in advance,
R version 3.4.1 (2017-06-30) -- "Single Candle"
