Package Releases

Posted by omegahat on March 20, 2010

I just put a new version of the XML package on the Omegahat repository.

There is a new version of the RKML package which handles large datasets much more rapidly.

Also, I put a new package named RJSCanvasDevice which implements and R graphics device that creates JavaScript code that can be subsequently display on a JavaScript canvas in an HTML document.

    I just tried to download the RKML package like this:
    install.packages(RKML, repos = “”)
    but got an error message:
    > install.packages(“RKML”, repos = “”)
    Warning message:
    In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
    package ‘RKML’ is not available
    If at some point I am able to intall it, would I be able to
    run kml files from R?

    Hi Felipe

    The problem is install.packages() is looking for a
    prebuilt binary version of the package for your operating
    system (windows?). But I haven’t put a binary version
    of the package on the omegahat repository. I can do that,
    but you might try to install the source version of the package
    install.packages(“RKML”, repos = “”,
    type = “source”)

      Hi, sorry for my english

      I’m trying to install the RKML package in a CentOS 5.5 OS with R-core-2.10:

      install.packages(“RKML”, repos = “”,type = “source”)

      but it’s return:

      install.packages(“RKML”, repos = “”,type = “source”)
      Warning in install.packages(“RKML”, repos = “”, :
      argument ‘lib’ is missing: using ‘/usr/lib/R/library’
      trying URL ‘’
      Content type ‘application/x-gzip’ length 4961705 bytes (4.7 Mb)
      opened URL
      downloaded 4.7 Mb

      * installing *source* package ‘RKML’ …

      ** preparing package for lazy loading
      Error in conformMethod(signature, mnames, fnames, f, fdef, definition) :
      In method for function “[“: formal arguments omitted in the method definition cannot be in the signature (drop = “NA”)
      Error : unable to load R code in package ‘RKML’
      ERROR: lazy loading failed for package ‘RKML’
      * removing ‘/usr/lib/R/library/RKML’

      I have this package installed in a Fedora 13 and working very well.

      Some ideia to fix ?

      Thanks for attention…
