Updated Rstudio srpm available


Due to the unexpected update to R 3.4 on Fedora 25 which is incompatible with the version of RStudio that I wrote about in this blog, I have spent the time to create a new srpm with an updated RStudio which runs on the new R 3.4. The release notes are here:

https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/release-notes/

If you had previously built the version I blogged about, that would correspond with the 0.99a release. So, you can see in the release notes what new things have been added since then.

Building
The build process is very similar to the original instructions. Please review them if you are new to building rpms. In essence you download the srpm. Then:

rpm -ivh R-studio-desktop-1.0.146-1.fc25.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bb working/R-studio-desktop/R-studio-desktop.spec

Then install. This assumes you followed the directory layout suggested in an earlier post.

RStudio picked up one new dependency for qt5-qtwebchannel-devel. You may need to install it first.

This version seems to work with R-3.4 and I've had some time to do limited testing. The only issue I see so far is that audit-explorer (which I'm yet to blog about) seems to have a bug that needs fixing.

One note about R upgrades...you have to re-install all of your packages. So, if you have upgraded R and RStudio, you'll need to start running the install.packages("") command in the console portion of RStudio prior to running any programs.
