I've successfully modified the xfce spin to include R and some other analysis software, now I am trying to install some of the packages from CRAN that aren't packaged for Fedora. To do this I am using the %post section of the kickstart file.
The first part copies the tarballs into a directory in the installation root.
# use the nochroot environment to copy files to the install file-system
cp $TARPATH/pwr_1.1.1.tar.gz $TAR_INSTALL
cp $TARPATH/AlgDesign_1.1-7.tar.gz $TAR_INSTALL
Then I use the R CMD INSTALL method to install the libraries (pwr and AlgDesign).
# use the chroot'd post environment to build/install the sources
R CMD INSTALL pwr_1.1.1.tar.gz
R CMD INSTALL AlgDesign_1.1-7.tar.gz
The first one (pwr) works just fine, but the second one (AlgDesign) fails. I think pwr is a pure R library, so it doesn't require any compilation, but AlgDesign requires a compile step. Here's the error message:
* installing *source* package 'AlgDesign' ...
** package 'AlgDesign' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
gcc -m32 -std=gnu99 -I/usr/include/R -I/usr/local/include -fpic -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m32 -march=i686 -mtune=atom -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -c FederovOpt.c -o FederovOpt.o
gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory
make: *** [FederovOpt.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'AlgDesign'
* removing '/usr/lib/R/library/AlgDesign'
ignoring %post failure (code 1)
I googled "gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory," and some threads mentioned that cc1 is provided by the cpp package. I double-checked the livecd-creator output, and I've got cpp installed successfully.
Any ideas on how to fix this? Do I need to set some path variables for gcc to work in the %post or %post --nochroot sections of the kickstart?
