This is not specifically a CentOS question, but I am creating RPMS for CentOS 6 from some CRAN tarballs.
I run R2spec -s tarball to create a spec file, and most of the time it works ok, but sometimes (RPostgresSQL, Rcpp for example) the package has test or example programs that start with
with lower case r, and the resulting package then winds up with a dependency on /usr/bin/r, which can’t be resolved.
So far I have solved it by editing all the files and replacing with
/usr/bin/R, recreating the tarball and going through the process again, but I have to believe there is an easier way.
Is there a option to not create the dependency?
Thanks Tony Schreiner
