Dear R developers,

I've got an information from Prof. Ripley regarding a bug found with 
AdressSanitizer in one of our packages. It is now fixed, thank you for 
this information.

Now, I would like to run AddressSanitizer myself before submitting the 
patched package to CRAN.

Is there a recommendation of a suitable Linux distribution with gcc 4.8, 
ideally an ISO image or (even better) a virtual appliance for VMware or 
VirtalBox? My Debian Wheezy machines have only 4.7.2.

Thank you

Thomas Petzoldt
