R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics: http://www.r-project.org/
To make it fully functional, it seems you need to install quite a few dependencies, not an easy task to do it manually: http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-admin.html#Essential-and-useful-other-programs-in-Unix

Do I like to compile everything?
Positive definite!

Hi.

If you searched on Google for r-project gentoo ebuild, you would have found several informative hits. As it turns out, from one of the first, I was able to determine that there's already an ebuild at Portage as dev-lang/R.

Thank you very much for your help! I have tried esearching r or R, the output is too numerous to be useful. Certainly I have searched in the forum but the output are mostly irrelevant. It seems google is still the best search tool! :oops:

Yeah, that's why on one of the hits on Google, someone complained about the name of the ebuild. He/she wanted it to become r-project, because when searching on https://bugs.gentoo.org for bugs related to R it was almost impossible to find anything - the same reasoning applies to Portage.
You should add [solved] to the title of the thread (edit first message).

Now only if we had R packages maintained as well as Debian does it.

I can sympathise, it took me longer to find it than I'd expected - I'd assumed it'd be in sci-mathematics rather than dev-lang. As you say, defining a search on R is a bit tricky...

Yeah, while I was searching for R, the first thing I did was
Code:
# ls /usr/portage/sci-mathematics

That didn't do it! :( I only found out that it was in dev-lang from the post I've linked above.

That looks to be a very helpful tool.
Do you know if it has any problems under AMD64? I have a perfectly running system, and altough I can run eix, everytime I try to do a search if segfaults! I have done the eix-update step before.

I would also think that dev-lang is not the right branch for R. It's about statistics. Octave is in sci-mathematics so it would be logical to have R there too.

Please post your suggestions in bugs.g.o. You're welcome to cc me in.
Now, I only found one open bug (96600). You know, it is hard to search for R...

I'm a fan of Gentoo-Portage.com... very similar to the emerge -S tool, but nice and graphical. :)

eix is faster; there is also http://packages.gentoo.org for when gentoo-portage.com goes on the fritz (which is often)
