Just did a straightforward ./configure/make/make install of R-1.2.0
and it seems that it doesn't set permissions on the R_HOME directory
properly (or at all!).
[root@chinstrap R-1.2.0]# make install
hence /usr/local/lib/R gets permissions from whatever root's
default is - in my case rwx------, and users cant start R.
Fix it after installation with:
chmod -R 755 /usr/local/lib/R
To fix the installer? Maybe use the install program from the
r-devel mailing list -- Read http://www.ci.tuwien.ac.at/~hornik/R/R-FAQ.html
