I installed the new rpm from CRAN for R 1.4 for Mandrake Linux 8.1, after getting blas and libgcc from rpmfind.net.  When I do update.packages() the system goes to update grid, lattice, and mgcv.  I get compile errors for two of them.  Apparently R is looking for gcc 3.0.1 or later but 8.1 uses 2.9x which is required for other Mandrake applications (i.e., I get a dependency error when trying to install the latest gcc*.rpm from rpmfind.net; there are no Mandrake 8.1 updates yet for gcc).  I would appreciate a pointer.  Thanks -Frank
