Just a quick tip if you want to use the geiger package in R on an Ubuntu system, there are a few things you need to make sure you do. First, make sure you’ve installed the gfortran package and lapack-dev package in order to build the source packages. As well, you may need to reinstall the r-base package after you’ve done this. I was getting an error message like this:
/usr/lib/liblapack.so.3gf: undefined symbol: ATL_chemv
It seemed to go away after I reinstalled r-base and restarted the R session, although I’m not sure I needed to do both. Either way, it works now.
