R related packages crash in 4.6.2 MacOSX

  • Anonymous - 2011-01-27

    I downloaded MeV 4.6.2 and when using LIMMA or SAM with R the whole program crashes.

    Sorry to hear that.
    What is the specification of your MAC and what version of R is installed on your system.

    I have a MacBook Pro running MacOSX 10.6.6. R version is 2.9.2. I tried with 2.12 but I got the same problem.

    I downloaded 4.7 hoping it will remedy the problem but the problem persists. when i download the package the folder with the Rpackages is empty.

    If I may add to this since I am affected with the exact same problem. I am running MeV 4.7 on a MAcBook Pro with R 2.13 installed and Limma is a no show. I get a very cryptic error message and this in the rhook.log file:

    It this means anything to anyone… FYI, limma never worked either on 4.6.1 (the latest version that I work with before). This is quite important since ti seems that more and more of MeV's functions will get connected to R.

    Finally… I had to remove all traces of R 2.13 on my Mac and install R 2.11.1 instead. Everything seems to work. This will certainly impact some of my work, probably to be solve via VMs running 2.13…
