When installing Matlab 2008b Student Version on Mac OSX 10.6.6, I got an exception error that said something like:
Cant load library: /Applications/MATLAB_R2008bSV.app/bin/maci64/libinstutil.jnilib
It turns out that Matlab 2008b is 32 bit, but the installer was running as 64 bit because of the Java preferences. Installation worked after I followed notes from this Matlab Central post.
Using the Java Preferences application (in /Applications/Utilities) go to the General tab, and at the bottom, under Java Applications, drag to reorder “Java SE 6 32-bit” to come before “Java SE 6 64-bit”. I only needed to do this while I was trying to run the activation program that is required before Matlab will run; after that you can reset the Java preferences to their original values.
Douglas Bates has draft chapters out for a new book lme4: Mixed-effects Modeling with R up and I was trying to play with the development version
lme4a. See this post for a note on how
lme4a differs from
lme4. It currently cannot be installed automatically using a command like
and I installed it via svn checkout following these posts. It requires the latest version of R (2.12.0), as well as at least
Rcpp 0.8.8.1 (from R-forge, via svn checkout; I obtained Rcpp 0.8.9.3 today), and
RcppArmadillo, and the packages
MatrixModels, available from CRAN respositories. (
RcppArmadillo is also available from CRAN respositories, but I went ahead and installed it from the
Rcpp SVN repository).
Here are the steps I followed (on Mac OSX, 10.6.4)
- I downloaded and installed the most recent Mac binary for R, R 2.12.0.
- I updated all my packages in R using
- I installed some dependencies for
- I obtained Rcpp/RcppArmadillo and lme4 repositories via svn checkout and installed Rcpp and lme4a (all commands entered in Terminal)
cd [your R sources directory] svn checkout svn://svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/rcpp svn checkout svn://svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/lme4 cd rcpp/pkg sudo R CMD INSTALL Rcpp # without sudo, I couldn't get permission to access a necessary directory sudo R CMD INSTALL RcppArmadillo cd ../.. cd lme4/pkg sudo R CMD INSTALL lme4a
