    Default Problem with starting R since latest update

    Dear all,

    I am using openSUSE 13.2 (Harlequin) (x86_64) and
    R - patched
    repository: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/

    Since the latest update to version 3.3.2 R does not start properly.

    I get the following error:

    Code:

    I tried uninstalling and re-installing in YaST, but that did not help.

    Any suggestions, why this happens and how to fix it?

    Default Re: Problem with starting R since latest update

    (Sorry I personally don't have R installed on one of my machines)

    Need...
    - Name of the RPM package containing the R you're using
    I'd recommend on general principles using the packages from the "release" repository instead of the "patched" repository.
    Try the following that adds the repo I'd recommend.
    First, disable the repo you're currently using, I think the following should work although I don't usually try to reference a repo by its URI. If the following doesn't work, you can reference the repo by number or label (You can display those by listing your repos) or using YAST repo management.
    Code:
    zypper mr --disable http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/R:/patched/openSUSE_13.2/
    Then add
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/R:/released/openSUSE_13.2/ openSUSE_13.2_devel:language_R
    If you aren't already configured to do so, you can add the above repository, then update your system to pull in any new R packages
    Code:
    zypper up
    From what you posted,
    To me, it looks like you don't have installed or properly updated with a "devel" package for your R package.
    If your R was working earlier, then it's probably a package availability or mistake problem.
    But, IMO getting your R from the release repo should be recommended in any case.

    Hi Tsu,
    Thanks for your reply. I am going to proceed as you suggest.
    I was actually using R-patched, because this was suggested at https://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/suse/README.html
