I am 2 days old in compiling and installing R-1.3.1 and having all kinds of
problems with one particular package named "Matrix_0.3-15.tar.gz"
Where should I start?
I have successfully installed R version R-1.3.1 as well as a host of other
packages (piece of cake). When I tried to install the Matrix package, I
got an error message stating that the "BLAS library could not be found" I
then downloaded a copy of the blas(blas.tgz) tar file from
www.netlib.org/blas that contained nothing but function files. I created
the library using Fortran (g77) and "ar". I called it "blas.a", moved it
to the /usr/local/lib directory and made sure my path was set. That still
didn't work. Next I was told that I probably need to recompile R so it can
recognize the blas library. I tried to do a "make distclean" to start over
and I get another error message that says:
make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target `clean`
Sorry to bore you with this R 101 basic stuff, but I have no clue as to
what to do next. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
