Hi Ruud, 

I forwarded your message to the StatET (R in Eclipse) list;
there might be StatET users with a similar setup as yours
on that list (and the StatET developer is more likely to 
pick up your question there).


>Hello, I am trying to install Eclipse and R on an amd64 machine running 
>Suse linux 9.3. I have compiled R 2.8.0 with --enable-R-shlib and it 
>seems that compilation was successfull. After starting R, I installed 
>the latest rJava package, from the output:
>checking whether JRI is requested... yes
>cp src/libjri.so libjri.so
>It seems JRI support has been compiled successfully. However, when I try 
>to open R from within Eclipse, I receive an error message:
>Launching the R Console was cancelled, because it seems starting the 
>Java process/R engine failed.
>Please make sure that R package 'rJava' with JRI is installed.
>I can open an R console from the command line, and attach the rJava 
>library without problems. What am I doing wrong here?
>Thanks, Ruud
