I don't think this will work for Lindsey's packages, as they are not
on CRAN.  You have to get them from his web page, e.g.:
wget http://popgen.unimaas.nl/~jlindsey/rcode/repeated.tgz

Then something like
R CMD INSTALL repeated.tgz
after you become root.

But I'm pretty sure that this package depends on others.  See
