In the rminer package by Paulo Cortez, using the mining function, it is possible to do a SVM regression.Using the script from the documentation


Is it possible to choose a kernel for the regression other than the default gaussian kernel? I would like to apply the same to a non-linear data and prefer to use a spline or other types of kernel for the same function.
