Dear listserv members, I have discovered that the qvalue package no longer works on Macs, at least those running OS X Lion or Mountain Lion. I have tried multiple different machines, and in each case, the qvalue package fails to load properly and R crashes when I attempt to use the "qvalue()" command. Is there something I am doing wrong, or can someone verify that I am right? This is a serious problem for me. Here is the exact code I am running (please note that changing the Bioconductor mirror does NOT help): Source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") biocLite("qvalue") #this generates many indecipherable warnings library(qvalue) #now this part coming up here is the specific part that causes the crash: qvalue() #boom, that's it, R shuts down. #Please note that changing the Bioconductor mirror does not help: chooseBioCmirror() #choose whichever mirror you like Source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") biocLite("qvalue") #again, many indecipherable warnings library(qvalue) qvalue() #boom, R shuts down again, same as before If you run my code, above, you will find this exact same problem on ANY Mac running OSX Lion or Mountain Lion. But is there any way to get qvalue working on my Mac? I very much need it. Thank you in advance!
