I try to install the package "flowClust" but I can't and I have this warning message " In install.packages(pkgs = doing, lib = lib, ...) : installation of package 'flowClust' had non-zero exit status".

I have done this : source("")
                         biocLite("flowClust", type = "source")

My version is R3.2.4

If you are using Windows, do you really want to install the package from source?

The error message seems too short to me, and you should your full sessionInfo() in order to get meaningful help.

Thank you for your answer.

I unsuccessfully tried : install.package("flowClust") and to install from the zip file without success. That's why i tried from the source.

I have got this Warning message:
package 'flowClust' is not available (for R version 3.2.4 Revised)


With SessionInfo() :

It's a Bioconductor package so from the package landing page

Exactly, any Bioc package installed with "install.package()" will lead to a "not available" error.

So, do try Martin's command please.
