Update R 2.1.1-1 -> 2.2.1 on UBUNTU

Florence Débarre
I've installed Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy on my Mac. When using MacOSX, I used to
work with R 2.2.1, but now, with Ubuntu, I can't download it with
synaptic. I can only download R 2.1.1-1, and I really need 2.2.1.

I've tried to edit the sources.list file, typing

deb http://cran.R-projet.org/bin/linux/debian stable/

R/r, using a different mirror,... but when I run synaptic, it says:

W: Impossible de localiser la liste des paquets sources
http://cran.R-projet.org stable/ Packages
(/var/lib/apt/lists/cran.R-projet.org_bin_linux_debian_stable_Packages) -
stat (2 Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type)

[W: Impossible to localize the list of source packages
....
no file or folder of this kind]

What can I do ?

Thanks,

Maybe you need to spell cran.R-project.org in English, with a 'c'?

In my opinion line in /etc/apt/sources.lst shoud be similar like this:

deb http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian/stable ./

Here is a copy of the relevant line in my /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://cran.R-project.org/bin/linux/debian sarge/

Hope this helps,

SOLVED Re: Update R 2.1.1-1 -> 2.2.1 on UBUNTU

Florence Débarre
> deb http://cran.R-project.org/bin/linux/debian sarge/
This line "worked", after having typed
apt-get update
in a terminal. "worked" means that synaptic didn't crash. But I still
wasn't able to download the newest version of R.

I've done it in a "coarse" way : I've downloaded the .tar file. I had to
download  ' x-dev ' and  ' xlibs-dev ' from synaptic as well, otherwise
there was a problem with X when doing ./configure.

I've then done ./configure ; make  ; make install.
It now works (still some pbs with pdf, but doen't seem too important)

Anyway, thanks for your help.

I suspect that you are still a little overwhelmed by the different package
management tools. I also suspect that you will find that a few minutes
documentation reading will pay off over the long term. There is a lot of
documentation out there, for both Debian and Ubuntu, and either one will
apply.

In a nutshell, here is what you need(ed). After adding the correct line from
the R FAQ containing the Debian 'backport' server address to the file
/etc/apt/sources.list, run
        $ apt-get update
which should run without errors. Then either one of
        $ apt-get dist-upgrade
or
        $ apt-get upgrade
should see that there is a new r-base package and upgrade for you.

A more isolated approach is to just say
        $ apt-get install r-base-core
which will upgrade just this package, plus its needed dependencies.

Sure, you can't compile when the header files are missing.

All that, plus more, would work if you just used (or rebuilt locally, but
that topic is for another day) the Debian package which works fine on Ubuntu.

Hope this helps, Dirk
