Hi,

 

I downloaded the package "RCurl_1.95-4.7.tar.gz" and try to install. I put it in the right directory.

(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

This question has been asked several times in this list. You probably are missing the dev libraries for libcurl (so the error "Cannot find curl-config"). Check some of the posts related to this topic in this site: https://support.bioconductor.org/local/search/page/?q=curl-config

Just another small, unrelated note that you should definitely upgrade your R installation, as yours is more than two years old.

Yes, see A: package install issue (ubuntu 14.04, R 3.2.1). This contains the answer if you are running Ubuntu/Debian.

 

Also you should not download the RCurl tarball but install it with biocLite().
