Hello Arne,

I do not know if this matters, but have you used 'results = verbatim' in your R code chunk? See page 13 in: http://www.statistik.lmu.de/~leisch/Sweave/Sweave-manual.pdf


>I want to have a "vignette" in one of my R packages. Hence, I 
>added an Sweave 
>file into the /inst/doc subdirectory of this package. 
>Unfortunately, 'R CMD 
>check' gives a warning:
>* checking tests ... OK
>* checking package vignettes in 'inst/doc' ... WARNING
>--- führe texi2dvi auf Vignetten aus
>* creating sampleSelection-manual.tex ... OK
>* checking sampleSelection-manual.tex using pdflatex ... OK
>WARNING: There was 1 warning, see
>for details
>Since the line below "WARNING" is in German, I ran 'LC_ALL="C" 
>R CMD check' 
>to get an English message (which I could use in a Google

>warning does NOT occur if I run 'R CMD check' in the 'C' 
>locale. I tried a 
>lot of different things and I figured out that 'führe texi2dvi 
>auf Vignetten 
>aus' is the translation of 'running texi2dvi on vignettes',
