Dear all,

I was trying to build my own R package cts on LINUX but got the following
"checking package dependencies error" and a warning message. What were wrong?



# R CMD check cts
* checking for working latex ... OK
* using log directory '/home/zwang/R/pkg/cts.Rcheck'
* using Version 2.3.0 (2006-04-24)
* checking for file 'cts/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* this is package 'cts' version '0.1-3'
* checking package dependencies ... ERROR
Warning message:
no package 'the_name_of_the_package' was found in: packageDescription(p, lib =
lib, fields = pkgFlds, encoding = NA)

The DESCRIPTION file looks like the following:
