GNU R-Project

I’ve seen from other posts that a few people here are using GNU R… but I’m having a bit of trouble finding it in Software Manager or with zypper. I’ll admit I’m more comfortable finding things in apt (Deb/Ubu) so it may be I’m not looking the right way, or in the right places.

I managed to find R-base in Software Manager, but only because I happened to find rkward in passing and it listed r-base as a dependency. Other dependencies such as R-survival for example… I can’t find in Software Manager even searching explicitly for those terms. I’ve been trying with and without case-sensitivity turned on, searching the descriptions, etc.

Is nothing but the R-base package included in the SuSE repos? Nothing like the CRAN packages available in Debian?

Which pretty much reinforces my point of… thats it? No CRAN, no RStudio…

Speaking of which… RStudio is available as a separate package (RPM) for openSuSE 11.4+… what is the best way to install that (since it has dependencies) without getting into rpm dependency hell?

Hi
I would suggest you contact the Maintainer of the ‘R’ packages
https://build.opensuse.org/project/users?project=devel%3Alanguages%3AR

You would need to download the src rpm’s and build or copy to the Open
Build Service and build there to ensure it all build properly for 12.2.

Looks like there is a sub-project for the CRAN packages… not sure how I’m supposed to get at them, though?

I had a hard enough time with LaunchPad PPAs in Ubuntu; these OBS repos with sub-projects are confusing the heck out of me.

Hi, I just start to learn R under openSUSE.

Here’s how to find a specific package:

  1. go to Search and type,

  2. click on the name, then click the “show other versions” to show all available package versions from different repositories.

  3. click “show unstable packages” to show all “unstable” packages (openSUSE sees all packages from repositories other than distribution oss/non-oss as unstable which actually are stable if not from home:* repositories. because they’re from official development repositories maintained by trusted distribution packagers. we developers just worry too much for the users.)

after these steps, you can get almost every R package you may need. 32-bit/64-bit link you can download the RPM directly(but you have to resolve package dependencies yourself), one-click can install it automatically for you from a supported browser(firefox/konqueror).

further (if you want to add a repository to YaST, then search & install using it or zypper.)

  1. click the repository name, will redirect you to build.opensuse.org

  2. in the right, click link like “openSUSE_12.2”

  3. click “go to download repository”

  4. copy that link in address bar, and add that link as repository.

(or if you used one click install once to install any one package from a repository, that repository is enable by default for you. so next time you can search in YaST.)

done.

so actually using openSUSE, you don’t need anyone to tell you any “PPA”, we have a center search to help you finding repositories to be added. by the way, PPA is …I’m not British people, I don’t know how to say dirty words native.
