Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to install "ggbio" on a linux server. In order to download the package, I did the following:





Upon completion, I get the following warning errors: 

Warning messages:
1: In install.packages(pkgs = pkgs, lib = lib, repos = repos, ...) :
  installation of package ‘ggbio’ had non-zero exit status

The transcript associated with the ggbio install:

Using Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.5), R version 3.1.1.

Here is the session info:

To try and address the problem, I have attempted the following:

1.Update existing packages using biocLite(character())

Running this package was successful, but still did not resolve issues with the "ggbio" install. 

Anyone have any ideas?

Update your question to provide a more complete transcript, especially where the installation of Matrix and ggbio actually fail; right now you're giving just enough info to know that something unexpected happened, but not enough to know exactly what. Post a comment when you've updated your question.

Sorry about the lack of information, hopefully the edits will help explain things a bit better.

The first step is to install a current version of R and Bioconductor packages. You have versions that are out of date by two release cycles.
