Although I managed to teach myself some R (a while ago), I am still a
novice in Bioconductor... I am trying to experiment a bit with the
smida-package, but I don't even get is properly installed on my system.
I downloaded the current version form
http://www.math.rug.nl/~ernst/book/smida.html and installed it (in R
2.9) after installing the lars package, which it needs to operate properly.
When I try to load the package, it keeps asking me for package mva,
which doesn't exist anymore, because it has been replaced -together with
modreg- by the stats package:
Loading required package: mva
Error: package 'mva' could not be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
In library(pkg, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, lib.loc =
there is no package called 'mva'
When I try to look at e.g. data(skin) of data(breast) or any other
command I find in the manual, R is not able to find any of those.
Can someone please show me the trick to get smida up and working?
Many thanks in advance
