Hi. I'm using Red Hat 7.1 Linux (Intel 586). I installed the 1.6.0 rpm. No
problems were reported. When I tried to load the chron library:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
        unable to load shared library "/usr/lib/R/library/chron/libs/": cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
Error in library(chron) : .First.lib failed

I checked to see if there was a new version of chron but apparently I had the
latest version. I did an "update.packages" any way. It updated a number of
packages but not chron. I haven't noticed any problems with other packages. R
appears to run OK.

I'm not sure why was missing. I removed the chron package and
re-installed chron. That fixed the problem. But what happened to when I
installed 1.6.0?
