Install Additional R Packages on Linux or UNIX

On Linux and UNIX platforms, the OML4R Server installation provides the ORE script, which you can run from the operating system prompt to install additional R packages.

The ORE script is a wrapper for the R installation command: R CMD INSTALL.

By default, R packages are installed in /usr/lib64/R/library. The ORE script, however, installs R packages in a subdirectory under $ORACLE_HOME/R/library.

To execute the script:

ORE CMD INSTALL R_package_name
