Hi I simply want to download Win32 sources at work for a home machine. My work machine is a linux box with Bioconductor installed Just wondering why this doesn't work > library(reposTools) > rep22 <- repositories(recurse = TRUE) and I then select the windows repository I can download a single package, eg > download.packages2("edd",repEntry=rep22,type="Win32") Note: destDir parameter missing, using current directory [1] "Attempting to download edd from" [1] "Download complete." [1] "/home/baker/tmp/R-forhome/" > but when I try and download all packages I get > download.packages2(repEntry=rep22,type="Win32") Note: destDir parameter missing, using current directory Note: pkgs parameter missing, downloading all packages in repository character(0) > and nothing happens. Alternatively, is there an easy way to get a vector of package listings and define all packages explicitly. Its not obvious to me how to do this e.g. > rep22@repdatadesc pkgs vers types [1,] AnnBuilder 1.4.2 Source, Win32 [2,] Biobase 1.4.15 Win32 [3,] Biostrings 1.0.0 Win32 ................... 75 other packages deleted > rep22@repdatadesc["pkgs"] [[1]] NULL > Comments welcome Thanks Peter -- Dr Peter Baker, Statistician (Bioinformatics/Genetics), CSIRO Mathematical & Information Sciences, Queensland Bioscience Precinct 306 Carmody Road, St Lucia Qld 4067.
