Answer: Problem with installation of RCurl
13.2 years ago by
Hi Shiliang --
This is because of a recent change in the development version of R. We
will update Bioconductor's binary distribution of RCurl shortly
(hopefully later today). Another solution is to use R version 2.3.1,
rather than R.2.4.0 (under development).
