Hello Harry,

Please follow These steps to install R in CentOS 6

Step 1 :

cd /home

Depending on your Distribution 32 or 64 bit do one of the following to as root
## RHEL/CentOS 6 32-Bit ##
wget *ttp://
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

## RHEL/CentOS 6 64-Bit ##
wget *ttp://
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

Step 2 :

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo
make sure that [epel] is enabled , enabled=1
the rest can be left disabled.

Step 3 :
yum install R

And there you have it, you have R installed on CentOS 6 . I've just checked it out it installes correctly.
Unfortunatelly I've never used R , so from here on you are alone.
