I've discovered that if you have old package data has been cached, attempting to load the newest reposTools will fail with this message: Synching your local package management information ... Error in if (e1[i] != e2[i]) return(TRUE) : missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed In addition, the devel affy package depends on affydata, which depends on affy, resulting in a situation where install.packages2() can't install either one or anthing depending on them. -Greg LEGAL NOTICE\ Unless expressly stated otherwise, this message is... {{dropped}}

This is fixed in the latest version of reposTools (1.1.37)

Sorry, if a "liblisting.Rda" fike created by an older (broken?) reposTools exists in the package directory syncLocalLibList() will fail with the message: Error in if (e1[i] != e2[i]) return(TRUE) : ?missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed Which bails out of library(reposTools), preventing the loading of libraries depending on reposTools. Perhaps it would be good to store a version number in the "liblisting.Rda" file so that an obsolete one can be ignored & a new one regenerated? > > > In addition, the devel affy package depends on affydata, > which depends on > > affy, resulting in a situation where install.packages2() > can't install > > either one or anthing depending on them. > > This is fixed in the latest version of reposTools (1.1.37) I got this problem with 1.1.37, using install.packages, and had to manually install affy and affydata to fix the problem. -Greg > LEGAL NOTICE\ Unless expressly stated otherwise, this message is... {{dropped}}

The problem here is that the format of the liblisting.Rda file has not changed, ever. So tagging it with a version isn't going to help in that respect. The problem is that there have been bugs in reposTools which *could* lead to corruption in one's liblisting.Rda file - we could say that tehre's a certain minimum version of reposTools that a liblisting.Rda must be associated with if we come across something that leads to liblisting corruption -> but an older liblisting is not (and probably not for most people) going to be corrupted. (btw, the short term solution here for you in particular right now, is to remove the liblisting.Rda file) > I got this problem with 1.1.37, using install.packages, and had to manually > install affy and affydata to fix the problem. I've run install.packages2 on affy using BIOCDevel from multiple installs of R w/ varying degrees of cleanliness and do not get this problem whatsoever. Does anyone else get still have this problem? -J
