Configurations:

OS = Rhel 7.2

Platform : Power PC

Description:

Affy being one of the R-language dependency package, I was trying to build it on Rhel 7.2 machine and I am getting the below error.

 Error in iconv(x, "latin1", "ASCII") :
unsupported conversion from 'latin1' to 'ASCII'

Not just affy for many other Bioconductor packages e.g. DBI and annotationDBI, I am getting same error.

1. Enter the R-shell/terminal using “R console” command
3. Then run command: biocLite("<pkg_name>", dependencies=true). This will install the package using Bioconductor installer.

Has anyone seen this error before? Also let me know if I am missing something here.

Any pointer would really be helpful.

Thanks,

Meghali

This is an R problem rather than a Bioconductor issue. It looks like you aren't finding the right (appropriate?, usable?) version of libiconv; there was a discussion about that here and I think at the end the OP got it sorted, so you might read that and see if it helps.

Otherwise, you will probably get better help at the R-help listserv (r-help@r-project.org.)

Thanks James for the response. I will followup more on the R-lang page.
