Installing GNU R packages in Linux


#1

Hi, I would like to install RBloomberg package from http://cran.uvigo.es/web/packages/RBloomberg/index.html
Has someone done it before? I am using Debian


#2

Hi,

start GNU R and enter:

> install.packages("RBloomberg",dependencies = TRUE)

The above will allow you to set your closest mirror as well install all dependencies.

I hope this helps…

Hi,

I did what you suggested and this is what happens:

> install.packages("RBloomberg",dependencies=TRUE)
Installing package(s) into ‘/home/renata/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.15’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Warning message:
package ‘RBloomberg’ is not available (for R version 2.15.1) 

Can you advice what I should do next?
