I recently installed R 1.7.1 on Mac OS 10.2.6, and I now need to
install the akima package. When I use install.packages(akima) or any
variation of that command, I get the following message:
Error: couldn't find function "install.packages"
(I haven't had any problems with other commands so far, so I don't
think there's a problem with the R installation. I also threw the whole
thing out and re-installed R from scratch, but that didn't help.)
I then tried simply downloading, unstuffing, and dragging the package
to my library folder. But then, when I tried library(akima), another
error message said the package wasn't properly installed.
