Dear Colleagues --

I've been trying unsuccessfully to use Bioconductor (mostly the affy 
package) on a Mac with OS X 10.3.3, running R with a GUI, either 1.8.1 
or 1.9.0 beta. I've tried to install Bioconductor with getBioC.R, which 
doesn't work all the way, and also tried to use a shell command to 
install downloaded packages, a la R CMD INSTALL 
/path/to/pkg_version.tar.gz , which also doesn't work all the way 
(stops when it can't find a 'make' command in SHLIB.

Suggestions? Caveats? Will this work? Shall I give up and 'switch' back 
to a PC???

Cheers & TIA,
Marc Salit
