Installing the bda package in R fails by default on Ubuntu.
When trying to install bda R package on Ubuntu, you've probably been greeted by
... /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llapack /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lblas collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [bda.so] Error 1 ERROR: compilation failed for package ‘bda’ * removing ‘/home/petr/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.1/bda’ The downloaded source packages are in ‘/tmp/RtmpKhOXn7/downloaded_packages’ Warning message: In install.packages("bda") : installation of package ‘bda’ had non-zero exit status
That's caused by some missing libraries. To fix this, you need to install BLAS and LAPACK. On Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install liblapack-dev
Afterwards, installation works like it should.
