[HowTo] Installing a CRAN package

Post by Ryuno-Ki » Thu Dec 13, 2012 22:41

Good evening,

I tried to install a R package from the CRAN repository today. For example car. How do I do that?

With this tipp I found a solution:

Code: Select all

$ su
# R
> install.packages("car")
Choose a mirror and install it this way, until there's a proper way to do it.

It may be interesting for some Gentoo/Sabayon Linux users as well :-)
