Holy cow! Problem solved! I got my R statistical program to work under CentOS! I used the 'rpmbuild -bb' command on the source RPM file and it started putting everything together.
What I don't get is how come I didn't have any dependency problems when I used the rpmbuild command. At least my program is working!

Apparently it didn't even install!
[root@master ~]# rpm -e R-2.3.1-1.fc5.src.rpm
error: package R-2.3.1-1.fc5.src.rpm is not installed
I got the non-src.rpm file and this is what happens:
[root@master ~]# rpm -ivh R-2.3.1-1.fc5.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by R-2.3.1-1.fc5.i386
libgfortran.so.1 is needed by R-2.3.1-1.fc5.i386
Now what? Where do I get these files? Seriously, how do you people even use this RPM system? It's horrible! Is there anything like Debian/Ubuntu with the 'apt-get' feature that resolves dependencies automagically???
