Hi everyone,

I have used the newest version of R (3.2.2 and 3.2.3) and Bioconductor (3.2), but I still could not successfully load the package mzR, it seems that it was one of the issues many people had mentioned -- compiler/linker. Below is the error message and the sessionInfo(). Note that I used R 3.2.3 first although the below was the output when I tried R 3.2.2.


> library(mzR)
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'mzR', details:
  call: description[["RcppModules"]]
  error: subscript out of bounds
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In fun(libname, pkgname) :
  mzR has been built against a different Rcpp version (0.12.1)
than is installed on your system (0.12.3). This might lead to errors
when loading mzR. If you encounter such issues, please send a report,
including the output of sessionInfo() to the Bioc support forum at For details see also
2: In packageDescription(pkg, lib.loc = lib) : no package 'mzR' was found

I hope the output is not too messy to read. Look forward to hearing some helpful advice.


Many thanks in advance,

Mike C.

This issue bothers me because these two are some of the dependencies needed for compiling our own r package.

I don't think that the problem is the Rcpp version. The error is

Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'mzR', details:
  call: description[["RcppModules"]]
  error: subscript out of bounds

which is new however to me.

I have nevertheless committed a new mzR version 2.4.1, which will be build with Rcpp 0.12.3. Please try to install it in about 24 hours and let us know if this helps.

mzR 2.4.1, that has been rebuild with the latest Rcpp is now available through biocLite. Let us know if you still experience the error.

Unfortunately, I am still experiencing the same error, even in the case when I installed the package by the local source tar ball. However, everything works well when I run R in Linux.
