Hi David,

I found this blog post helpful. I had a similar situation where I was
installing R 3.3 on CentOS 6, and I found these instructinos worked well:


The only problem I had is that the instructions as written do not allow for
using the R installation with RStudio or RStudio Server. For this, I
believe you need the -fPIC option when installing R (and maybe the
libraries as well), but not certain about this.
