Installing R on fedora 19


I have tried to install "R" source package on fedora 19, but the configure command gives me the following error:

configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not available
I'm not sure what library is exactly missing to solve this problem ?!

yum search show that the R package is available available:
R.x86_64 : A language for data analysis and graphics
regarding the error you have, i imagine what you need is the readline-devel package.
