As root, I have tried to install the package 'ToPASeq' (or only the dependency 'igraph') with an error telling me that " cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" (see below).

Using the Linux command: locate
I can see that the file exist under the following path: /opt/anaconda3/lib/

I have tried to add this path to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable by editing the "/usr/lib64/R/etc/ldpaths" file like this: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="${R_LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/opt/anaconda3/lib"

This, however, introduced another error:
"/usr/lib64/R/bin/exec/R: symbol lookup error: /opt/anaconda3/lib/ undefined symbol: PC"

How can I point R to "/opt/anaconda3/lib/" without introducing other errors?


This is the error message generated by the installation process:
