Hi - I'm relatively new to R, and would appreciate a bit of advice on
how to get off the ground.

I'd like to install RCmdr to take advantage of the GUI.

I've installed the package, and all the dependencies.  I started X11.
In my R-GUI window, I have checked the box next to RCmdr in the
Package Manager.  The scripts start executing in my R window, but the
following happens:

"Loading required package:  tcltk
Loading Tcl/Tk interface . . . > "

. . . and the install hangs here.

Am I missing some component to get the install to execute cleanly?
