Installing R on Linux

I was a bit skeptical about writing this post due to the scarcity of content, but anyhow you know what I chose.

So, installing R on Ubuntu is all about the following two steps:

sudo apt-get install r-base
sudo apt-get install littler                                                                                                                        

To check you installation, type-in “R” in your terminal, which should open an R shell. Here you can try installing a package for example:

> install.packages("randomForest")
> install.packages("stringr")                                                                                                                   

If all worked fine, your machine has got R correctly installed. The same way you can install R on a CentOS machine using the following commands:

sudo yum install r-base
sudo yum install littler                                                                                                                             

Rest follow the same steps.

Hope this small piece of information is helpful to some of you.
