I've been using R on windows for a number of years, so when
I recently installed
Linux I wanted to install R as well. Downloading and
installing the rpm's for R-Base and R-recommended went well
and I seem to have a functioning R.
I then downloaded the quadreg package and used R CMD
INSTALL to install it. All went well up to a message:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lreadline
which stopped the installation. I checked to see whether
readline is installed and found that it is and, furthermore,
the arrow keys and emacs keys work fine in R. Any help would
I'm using R 1.5.1 on Mandrake Linux 8.2.
