Hello all,

I am not sure whether this is a question that should be addressed to the R
list or the Bioconductor one. If you feel that this is not a Bioconductor
issue, I apologize in advance.

I have just installed the latest R version form CRAN:

> version
platform i386-pc-mingw32
arch     i386           
os       mingw32        
system   i386, mingw32  
major    2              
minor    0.0            
year     2004           
month    10             
day      04             
language R  

And also the latest Bioconductor release with no problems whatsoever:

> source("http://www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R") 
> getBioC()
Running getBioC version 1.2.67....
If you encounter problems, first make sure that
you are running the latest version of getBioC()
which can be found at: www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R

Please direct any concerns or questions to bioconductor at stat.math.ethz.ch.

You have downloaded a default set of packages.

However, when I install the package "gregmisc" from CRAN and I try to access
it I get the following:

> local({a <- CRAN.packages()
+ install.packages(select.list(a[,1],,TRUE), .libPaths()[1], available=a,
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/PACKAGES'

bundle 'gregmisc' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

Delete downloaded files (y/N)? y

updating HTML package descriptions

> library(gregmisc)
Error in library(gregmisc) : There is no package called 'gregmisc'

Am I missing something? Am I doing anything wrong? Any help would be greatly

Thanks everyone in advance and have a good day.
