Thread: Problem with R-base 2.13.0 in 11.4

    Default Problem with R-base 2.13.0 in 11.4

    Opensuse 11.4 64

    After installing R-base 2.13.0 and a python library rpy2 I get following error:

    Python 2.7 (r27:82500, Aug 07 2010, 16:54:59) [GCC] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> import rpy2.robjects as robjects
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/rpy2/robjects/", line 12, in <module>
    import rpy2.rinterface as rinterface
    File "/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/rpy2/rinterface/", line 66, in <module>
    from rpy2.rinterface.rinterface import *
    ImportError: /usr/lib64/R/lib/ undefined symbol: _gfortran_concat_string

    This problem has appeared in earlier versions of Opensuse too
    and seems to be an issue how R is compiled/packed

    Hopefully someone packaging R-Base for OpenSuse can correct this

    I know it is very late, but the instructions at:

    Re: [AniMov] almost there with OpenSuSE 11.3 , R, QGIS and Homerange plu

    should fix it. (It just did for me.) R in OSS and science repo are both broken in this sense.

    It has been like this for a long time now. I don't know where to report this bug.
