Dear all,

the statistics package R (www.r-project.org) was available for CentOS-4, but I 
need it for CentOS-5 (64bit). RPMforge has R-2.5.1 for CentOS-4, so I thought 
I'd try to install that on CentOS-5.

However, yum complains about missing ggv, and the specfile indeed says that R 
requires ggv, which is not in CentOS-5 (it has kghostview).

I could probably install with "rpm -Uvh --nodeps", but the question is rather: 
has anybody built R for CentOS-5 ?

thanks for any insight,
