Hi R Expert Community,

I need your help in getting rggobi and ggobi to work.

I tried running ggobi under Rattle's Explore tab and interactive option but got an error. I then tested library('rggobi')and noticed I get the same error. So it's not Rattle specific.

I have GGOBI and rggobi installed on my machine. Below is the info.

At first I got Error 'A' below. Then I looked at the solution here and uninstalled/reinstalled rrgobi: https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2007-March/127836.html

But after I remove.packages('rggobi') and install.packages('rggobi') I get error 'B' below.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

> library('rggobi')
Error in get(Info[i, 1], envir = env) : 
  internal error -3 in R_decompress1
In addition: Warning message:
