Information Description

The recommended way to run Rserve on Bio-Linux is to install the "r-cran-rserve" package - ie:

$ sudo apt-get install r-cran-rserve

(Note - this wasn't working on the morning of the 13th but has now been fixed in version 1.7-3-0biolinux2)

If you install the library by using install.packages("Rserve") it will work but it will not get updated and will mask the system version of Rserve, which could cause you hard-to-diagnose problems down the line.  My recommendation is to remove these manually installed versions and stick with the packaged version.  Use this command:

$ find ~/R/*/3.0 /usr/local/lib/R -name Rserve -prune

Whatever directories you see listed can be removed from the system.  The version installed by r-cran-rserve will have gone in /usr/lib/R/site-library.
