Hello, everybody:

I just installed the latest version of R and trying to install the
packages. The eriee thing is: while for some package, it works fine, for
others, it won't install. Here is one of the similar error messages from
one   failed installation.  

Can anybody take a look and figure out a solution? I sense it is
something related to the shared library.
