Problems starting the R programming language: error while loading shared libraries: libgfortran.so.4: cannot open shared object file

#1

Hi,

Thanks again for the fantastic Calculate Linux!

Since a recent update I have not been able to start the R programming language at the command-line - I get the following message:

$ R
/usr/lib64/R/bin/exec/R: error while loading shared libraries: libgfortran.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I had the same problem last year, https://www.calculate-linux.org/boards/15/topics/37695?r=37761
This was fixed by Alex (thanks) who said ā€œNot all dependencies were recompiled in binary packages.ā€

Please do the same again!

Thanks,
Bill

Hi,

I also had this issue. As a temporary solution, you can make it work again by installing R from source :

FEATURES="-getbinpkg" emerge dev-lang/R

Jesse - that worked, thanks very much!

Hopefully the developers can fix the underlying issueā€¦

Cheers, Bill
