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):

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.
