Sub_title: Compiled R statistics software on Slacko 5.4

Please enjoy R-statistics package on Puppy Linux (Puppy Slacko 5.4). This is version 2.15.2 compiled directly within puppy:

Download R-2.15.2 from here:
(If there is a better or easier host I can upload this file to, please let me know)

Homepage of the R-Project: http://www.r-project.org/

Compile steps:

1) Download necessary files to a temporary directory:
1a) wget http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.0/academic/R.tar.gz
1aa) wget http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.0/academic/R.tar.gz.asc
1b) http://cran.stat.ucla.edu/src/base/R-2/R-2.15.2.tar.gz

2) verify file
within the directory execute gpg --verify R.tar.gz.asc
(gnupg needs to be installed, --import key from http://slackbuilds.org/GPG-KEY)

3) The tmpfs ran out of space during my first try of compiling it, Thus I symlinked the directory required by the SlackBuild file
ln -s /mnt/home/tmp/SBo /tmp/SBo

4) execute the SlackBuild script from within the directory of (1)

(Please ensure that you have the devx_slacko_5.4.sfs loaded. Additionally it required to install gfortran, which I did via the puppy package manger PPM)


Any next better versions of R packages or improvements to the installation steps are welcome. The package has a size of 33M and is directly installable from Puppy Slacko 5.4, it is not a PET though.

I am happy to have realized again that even the not-so-mainstream software packages are relatively easy to install in Puppy.

I had to go the self-compiliation path as the R-versions I found here on murga-linux did not work for my Puppy Slacko 5.4. Here are the links to the other R threads I had found:
