I downloaded:
described as:
    Package: hgu95av2 
    Title: A data package containing annotation data for hgu95av2 
    Version: 1.7.0 
    Created: Wed Jan 12 16:57:23 2005 
    Author: Lin,Chenwei 
    Description: Annotation data file for hgu95av2 assembled using data
       from public data repositories 
       Maintainer: Lin,Chenwei < clin at fhcrc.org > 
       LazyLoad: yes 
       Depends: R(>= 2.0.0) 
       License: LGPL 
       Packaged: Thu Mar  3 15:43:00 2005; biocbuild

It is an example database of the geneplotter library.

Trying to install, I got:
	$ R CMD INSTALL hgu95av2_1.7.0.tar.gz 

	* Installing *source* package 'hgu95av2' ...
	** R
	** data
	** preparing package for lazy loading
	Error: 'delay' is defunct.
	Use 'delayedAssign' instead.
	See help("Defunct")
	Execution halted
	ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'hgu95av2'
	** Removing '/usr/local/lib64/R-2.4.1/library/hgu95av2'

How to by-pass this problem?

Thanks - Wolfram
