> I am running Bioconductor on WindowsXP and can do just one job at a time. When I've submitted another job my machine got memory problem (I have 1G of RAM though). I am exiting Bioconductor and open it again. Memory problem is fixed by this (is there hanging pointers somewhere?) but affy library is screwed.
> This what I have:
> Error in mlistMetaName(f) : No way to associate a generic function with an object of class "NULL"
> Error in library(affy) : .First.lib failed
For this sort of thing you have to tell us the versions of the various
tools you are working with: What version of R, which version of affy,
etc. The errors above have to do with the methods package of R
which is evolving independently of affy.
> The only way I can fix it is to reinstall whole package again.
this is overkill. you have to provide more precise diagnostic
information to solve the problem rationally.
> Is there Uninstall function for Bioconductor, which will not uninstall R?
> How to fix described problem?
no. but you could use Rcmd REMOVE [pkgname] from a windows
DOS prompt if you had Rcmd.exe in your path.
