Oracle R Distribution for R 2.15.2 available on public-yum

Oracle R Distribution (ORD) for R 2.15.2 on Linux is now available for download from Oracle's public-yum repository.  R 2.15.2 is a maintenance update that includes improved performance and reduced memory usage for some commonly-used functions, increased memory available for data on 64-bit systems, enhanced localization for Polish language users, and a number of bug fixes.  Detailed updates can be found in the NEWS file - see the section 'CHANGES IN R VERSION 2.15.2'.

The most recent update to Oracle R Enterprise, version 1.3.1, is certified with both R 2.15.1 and R 2.15.2. Installing ORD from public-yum will pull the most recently posted version, R 2.15.2.  For example, on Oracle Linux 5, as root, cd to yum.repos.d, download the public yum repository configuration file, and enable the required repositories:

    cd /etc/yum.repos.d
    wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo
    Edit file public-yum-el5.repo and set
        "enabled=1" for [el5_addons]
        "enabled=1" for [el5_latest]

Next, install ORD:



Start R.  Oracle R Distribution for R 2.15.2 is installed.



To install an older version of ORD such as R 2.15.1, simply specify the R version at the install step:

    yum install R-2.15.1

Detailed instructions for installing Oracle R Distribution are in the Oracle R Enterprise Installation and Administration Guide.  Oracle R Distribution for R 2.15.2 on AIX, Solaris X86 and Solaris SPARC will be available on Oracle's Free and Open Source Software portal in the coming weeks.
