I am new to R on Linux (and to LINUX), running a 1.9.1 on a Linux MDK10.0. When updating or installing different packages, I get messages like this (under), the package doesn't install. Can anyone help me? I know this is all to little information, but I don't know were to start. I think there is something wrong in how or were the C++ or fortran compilator is installed??
Thanks, Geir S.
