Bug #2099

Updated by Matthieu Decorde about 4 years ago

During the TXM Debian installation, TXM stops because FactoMineR needs R 3.3.2.

h3. hypothesis
Does the fetched FactoMineR sources version depend on R version ?

Test: install FactoMineR using R 3.0.2 (Ubuntu 14.04 default version). FactoMineR should ask R 3.3.2

Test result: when called from R 3.1 "install.packages("FactoMineR", repos="http://cran.rstudio.com/"), the function will try to find out the packages in https://cloud.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/3.1/ :
<pre>
> install.packages("FactoMineR", repos="http://cran.rstudio.com/")
Installing package into 'C:/Users/màtté/Documents/R/win-library/3.1'
(as 'lib' is unspecified)
trying URL 'http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/3.1/FactoMineR_1.32.zip'

Content type 'application/zip' length 3544346 bytes (3.4 Mb)
opened URL
downloaded 3.4 Mb

package 'FactoMineR' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
</pre>

h3. Solution 1

Install R 3.3.2 and restart TXM installation

h3. Solution 2

Install a FactoMineR compatible with the current R version.
→ use another package repository ?
→ use an install.packages option to use a certain version of FactoMineR ?

Versions table:
<pre>
OS R FactoMineR
12.04 2.14.1 <= 1.33
14.04 3.0.2 <= 1.33
16.04 3.2.3 <= 1.33
16.10 3.3.1 >= 1.34
</pre>
