I'm running R 1.1.1 under RedHat 7 with no problems. I used the rpm for 6.2 but
I installed the readline2.2.1 rpm for libreadline.so.3. (It may be on the
second CD.)  Here's the info on readline2.2.1:

Name        : readline2.2.1                Relocations: /usr 
Version     : 2.2.1                             Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.

Size        : 195060                           License: GPL
Packager    : Red Hat, Inc. <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla>
Summary     : A library for reading and returning lines from a terminal.
Description :
The readline library reads a line from the terminal and returns it,
allowing the user to edit the line with standard Emacs editing keys.
The readline library allows programmers to provide an easy to use and
more intuitive interface for users.

This version of the readline package provides backwards compatibility
for programs built against Red Hat Linux 6.2.

I don't use Tk/tcl so I think I just installed with --nodeps.
