Do Not Use Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1 with Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1

Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1 Linux RPMs, now available on Oracle's public yum, will be compatible with future versions of Oracle R Enterprise.

However, you should use Oracle R Distribution 2.15.3 with Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1. Do not use Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1.

When installing Oracle R Distribution for Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1, specify this command:

yum install R-2.15.3

If you do not specify 2.15.3, R-3.0.1 will be installed by default

Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1 Supports Oracle Database 12.1

Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1 now supports Oracle Database 12.1, the most recent release of Oracle Database.

Note:

Oracle Database 12.1 currently ships with Oracle R Enterprise 1.2. If you have Oracle Database 12.1, you should upgrade to Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1.
