Ive installed R1.9 beta from :
and then used its gui to install the Bioconductor Affy (and a few
others) packages. Other than some problems with tcltk and limmaGUI
and what I think is a different problem with simpleaffy things have
worked (as much as I can tell). This is with OSX10.3.3, and the X11
and the developer tools which came with it.
