R script compiles from source, debs available

Reported by: wildintellect Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: R, CRAN


The current way the R script was written pulls source packages from cran and compiles them. deb packages are available now for most packages,and this could potentially save a lot of time in the build. But we need to go through the list and figure out the ubuntu package names, and which ones don't have packages.

Note debs are available by adding a repo like deb http://<my.favorite.cran.mirror>/bin/linux/ubuntu jaunty/

In the case of our project we've been using Or for use Californian builders

Attached file was run on 8.04 more packages may be present in Jaunty but it's a good start. Who wants to go through and create an apt-get and remove them from the installRpackages.r once done.

are cran-.debs now being used as much as they can be?

As far as I know yes, but I haven't done a compare of the R packages against the Jaunty repo. We were able to move about 10-20 R packages to debs. This will probably need to be revisited every time we start with a new Ubuntu version.
