I'm trying to install your Rsubread pkg for a user here on our cluster. The problem seems to be that I'm getting basic C errors which is odd for such a long-lived package. Is there a missing header file in this package?

The errors below are from R 3.4.1, but I get essentially identical ones from other R versions using gcc/4.8.2.

The install was initiated, after loading the R/3.4.2 module, with:

> source("")
> biocLite("Rsubread")

The ifreq struct should be defined in <net/if.h>, which for me is found in /usr/include/.  Is it present on your system, and included during compilation?  

Entering edit mode

I have the same error and I found /usr/include/net/if.h in my system. How can I know whether it is included udring compilation?

Entering edit mode

After I give the net/if.h in compilation, it still not working...the command is below.....

gcc -std=c99 -I/usr/include/ -I/lustre/home/fubeide/soft/R-3.4.0/include -DNDEBUG   -I/lustre/home/fubeide/lib/include  -DMAKE_FOR_EXON -D SUBREAD_VERSION="\"Rsubread 1.26.1\"" -w -fpic  -g -O2  -c HelperFunctions.c -o HelperFunctions.o


HelperFunctions.c: In function ‘mac_str’:
HelperFunctions.c:824:18: error: storage size of ‘ifr’ isn’t known
     struct ifreq ifr;
HelperFunctions.c:825:19: error: storage size of ‘ifc’ isn’t known
     struct ifconf ifc;


Entering edit mode

ok, it's my fault.....the error is gone after I remove the       -std=c99         in compilation................
