Problems installing package affy in R (Ubuntu Gutsy)?
To solve this problem, first, I had to upgrade to R 2.8.
Then, affy wouldn’t compile. The problem was simple, it needed affyio.
affyio, however, wouldn’t compile either. It needed zlib.h, which can be found in several packages, but I installed zlib1g-dev and then affyio compiled without problems, and then affy compiled too.
