Hi RnBeads Team,

I've been trying to install Rnbeads onto my PC at work via remote access (via MAC).

I've had various issues with dependencies not installing and have tried various ways to solve it; reinstall, run as administrator, install missing packages individually (e.g. Tibble) and the suggestion posted here:  https://bioinformatics.stackexchange.com/questions/3143/installing-rnbeads-via-bioconductor-onload-failed-in-loadnamespace-call-n 

However, I'm stalled again on some of the dependencies being 'not available (for R version 3.6.3)'.

I tried installing an older R version but then other dependancies now don't work (e.g. ggplot2 written in R3.6.3).

Is there a work around for this or should I contact the author of the missing packages to update them accordingly?

Kind regards,

Peter

Hi Peter,

Indeed, there are currently some problems with RnBeads dependencies depending on you computational setup. Here are some suggestions on how to solve this issue:

I hope that one of these solutions works for you. Let me know if there is another issue.

Best,

Michael

Dear Michael,

I took the first two suggestions above and everything seems to be working so far!

I think the issue was the Stringi package as I also installed it on my MAC and now the analysis runs more completely (saving a me few more forum posts!).

Of note though for Stingi installation, I used CRAN version for PC and GitHub for MAC.

Kind regards,

Peter
