Hi everyone, 

I am trying to install kernlab package, but failed many times by now on
CentOS 6 operating system.

Here is the error message:

trying URL 'http://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/CRAN/src/contrib/kernlab_0.9-18.tar.gz'
Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 1069148 bytes (1.0 Mb)

** libs
make: *** [brweight.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package kernlab
* removing ~/n/home09/wang/R/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-library/3.0/kernlab

The downloaded source packages are in
Warning message:
In install.packages("kernlab") :
  installation of package kernlab had non-zero exit status

I found out online that many others also failed installing kernlab, but no
explicit solutions for this problem. 
What I have tried so far are:
1) change cran mirrors
2) using command line directly: R CMD INSTALL kernlab_0.9-18.tar.gz, after
downloading the package
3) reset working directory
Unfortunately, none of these solved my problem...

Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
