Fedora 9 dependency errors when installing R 2.7.1.rpm


Hi

I'm trying to install the R stats package on Fedora 9 and I end up with this message:

[gareth@localhost Download]$ rpm -i r.rpm
warning: r.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 97d3544e
error: Failed dependencies:
libtcl8.5.so()(64bit) is needed by R-2.7.1-1.fc9.x86_64
libtk8.5.so()(64bit) is needed by R-2.7.1-1.fc9.x86_64
perl(File::Copy::Recursive) is needed by R-2.7.1-1.fc9.x86_64

I then googled the files and downloaded them. When trying to install them I ended up with this message:

[gareth@localhost Download]$ rpm -i tcl-8.5.1-4.fc9.i386.rpm
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

Now where to from here?

Thanks

You are trying to use the i386 version when you need the x86_64 version.

I see what you mean, although the site that I got it from says it's for Fedora 9 for x86_64
(http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...l8.5.so)-right at the bottom.

where else can I find the right rpm?

first off from your post

[gareth@localhost Download]$ rpm -i tcl-8.5.1-4.fc9.i386.rpm
you are trying to install it as a normal user an not as root
try this
Code:
su -
( your root password when asked )
rpm -i tcl-8.5.1-4.fc9.i386.rpm
and DO NOT leave off the - yes that is a minus " - "

As it is marked .i386 I would say somebody made a mistake.


Where are you getting the R rpm your are trying to use? Usually it is easier just to use yum.

Go to the R site and get your correct x86_64 rpm.
e.g.
http://cran.ms.unimelb.edu.au/bin/li...fc9.x86_64.rpm
etc you will need more
