I guess, Naomi, you somehow managed to keep an old version of hexbin around? It may be because getBioC() has changed and doesn't install "hexbin" anymore AFAIK, unless you explicitly ask for getBioC("hexbin", lib = ...., destdir = ....) the need of which I had been wondering about as well.. Also --- probably more a question to the bioconductor-release-managers : if you had used the above getBioC(..) shouldn't you have gotten "hexbin" *plus* all the packages it depends on, i.e., in your case "colorspace" as well? Naomi, can you tell us *how* you've installed hexbin?

OK, true confession time. I tend to leave my software well enough alone until I come up with a problem (as I just did). So, I was running R. 2.0.1 with what I thought was the most recent release of Bioconductor. I do regularly hit the "update packages" button. I have been installing Bioconductor by installing R (on Windows) using the pulldown menu to "install packages" Hexbin was in the "Install packages from Bioconductor" menu. But that was the wrong version, so I went to the Bioconductor website, and tracked down the developer version of hexbin, which requires R 2.1.0. I just upgraded to R 2.1.1. Without starting over, it is hard to see what comes automatically with hexbin, as I have already downloaded all the relevant bits and pieces. All I can say in my defense is that I do try to respond to more bioconductor questions than I pose, to even the score a bit. Thanks everyone for your assistance. I guess I had better reinstall all the Bioconductor software that I use to ensure I have the latest release. --Naomi At 09:55 AM 7/19/2005, Martin Maechler wrote: > >>>>> "JimMcD" == James MacDonald <jmacdon at="" med.umich.edu=""> > >>>>> on Mon, 18 Jul 2005 15:23:19 -0400 writes: > > JimMcD> library(reposTools) > JimMcD> install.packages2("colorspace") > > JimMcD> HTH, > > JimMcD> Jim > > JimMcD> Also, if you are using the devel version you will probably > need to be > JimMcD> running R-2.2.0 > >but really the grid-based hexbin is in the current Bioconductor >(1.6), at least for me, >so I am a little perplexed why Naomi first needs to download it. > >I guess, Naomi, you somehow managed to keep an old version of >hexbin around?
