Thread: R package for red hat distribution

  1. #1

    Default R package for red hat distribution

    Hi,

    My package depends on the R statistical language.
    I can't find the R package name for red hat (rhel5, nor centos5).
    I have the error message : nothing provides R-core.
    I also tried R, R-base, r.
    I also tried to search an existing package from another project to link to, but none of them was designed for rhel (mostly opensuse), so it doesn't build.

    What's my best option here ?
    Did I miss the R package name for rhel ?
    Porting the opensuse one ?
    Can I add manually a .rpm file built for rhel ?

    x.

    Hi
    You would need to build R-core on the build service for your project.

    Hmm, how hard did you look? If I go to The R Project for Statistical Computing and click on the CRAN link, choose a mirror, choose Linux, I get a list of platforms of which redhat is one, and then click el5 after that, you get a list of architectures.

    Ok,
    It's just that I didn't know I could find the wanted .spec in the srpm to build my package.
    Thanks a lot.
