Dear kiwi, I'm not suggesting you should use "", it's just one of the alternatives. It loads fine for me on a 64 bit Fedora 9 machine with R 2.9.0, however, I have not installed asreml in the default R library tree, so a sequence like LD_LIBRARY_PATH=path/asreml/libs library(asreml,lib.loc="path") works. I'm not able to check the 32 bit version with R 2.9 just yet. Can you give me some more background on your installation, such as 32/64 bit, R installation configuration (ie paths to 2.8 and 2.9 if installed in parallel), contents of LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc. Perhaps you could send this directly to me rather than the list. dave. ________________________________ From: ASReml users discussion group [] On Behalf Of kiwi Sent: Thursday, 7 May 2009 9:02 AM To: Subject: Re: Does ASReml-R work with R-2.9.0?

Depending on your installation, check either the setting of the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH or the path in /etc/ and make sure that which ever of these you have used points to the package sub-directory ('libs') containing the asreml shared object (.so) files. I have that set in ~/.bash_profile and R-2.8.1 is quite happy about it so I can't be far off target. There must be something different in R-2.9.0 which decides against looking there. Are you indicating that I should use /etc/ ? I don't have access to edit it. At present, all it has is: Code: include*.conf and the directory it's in has these: Code: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 94960 Mar 25 10:56 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 28 Oct 9 2006 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 6 06:24 /etc/ has this: Code: /etc/ used 28 available 31464792 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 6 06:24 . drwxr-xr-x 101 root root 12288 May 6 04:02 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 20 Sep 14 2007 qt-i386.conf qt-i386.conf would have nothing to do with this lot I think would be safe to say. The might have something in it which needs updating or something along those lines. I'm totally ignorant of its workings, so all manner of subtleties could be behind the problem I'm experiencing. Even so, I'd have thought I need to find out what R-2.9.0 is doing differently. It's probably not a question for the Rhelp list since we're using something rather different from what "standard" R packages use. -------------------- m2f -------------------- Sent using Mail2Forum ( Read this topic online here: -------------------- m2f -------------------- This message is intended for the addressee named and may contain confidential information.
