failure installation packages rgdal, rgeos RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I get an error when I install 'rgdal' package (see below) Sorry it is in French but it should be easily understandable.

    Any idea?

    Installation du package dans ‘/Users/pbs/Library/R/3.4/library’
    (car ‘lib’ n'est pas spécifié)
    essai de l'URL ''

  • Are you running Microsoft R on a Mac?

    If yes, you should be able to fix this issue by creating the following symbolic links on your system:

    sudo mkdir /usr/local/clang4/bin/
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/clang /usr/local/clang4/bin/
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/clang++ /usr/local/clang4/bin/
