Hi Jason,
I suppose you installed the Matrix library, and it is working on your computer? If yes, may be det.Matrix() was removed, or renamed in the Matrix library you have (I cannot check this for the latest version, because I am away of the office until August 1st), but I will do that next week.
In the meantime, you can replace 'det.Matrix' by 'det.default', and it should run. Do not compare the timing for this particular test, with other results if you mqke this change. Anyway, as pointed out by Prof. Brian Ripley some times ago (and I think, also, in the online help), the determinant of a matrix is seldom used in the various algorithms in R, and it is thus a poor indicator of the potentials of the software for data analysis. As always, take the results of this benchmark with care: only few functions tested, not a "real work" comparison, etc... The best being probably to supplement this benchmark with some of your favorite scripts that you run on the various machines you want to compare. This way, you get a better idea for your pqrticulqr work.
Best,
Philippe Grosjean
