[BioC] Problem installing altcdfenvs

I don't know your level of R, so if I am being too simplistic, I am 
sorry, anyway:

Check where the folder altcdfenvs was located (you have two options, 
you can decide to install it in the folder Library inside the folder 
HD/Library/Frameworks/R or under Users/'yourname'/Library/R/library

(when doing getBioC() you were probably asked where to install it)

if you have the folder altcdfenvs in in one of those folders and
still gives you an error, then maybe you need to give the right path 
inside R so that the libraries are read in all the folders that you 
have libraries in

I think this can be done by using the function: .libPaths(new) (new 
being the path to the folder: "Users/yourname/library"

The other solution, would be to place your library in the library 
from frameworks, where it should work

hope this helps

I am using R version 2.0.1 on mac os 10.3.6

Here is a transcript showing the problem:

>  source("http://www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R")
>  getBioC()

>  library(altcdfenvs)
Error in library(altcdfenvs) : There is no package called 'altcdfenvs'
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/2.0/PACKAGES'
Content type `text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1' length 18693 bytes

Please advise.
