I'm trying to run rstudio-server on our cluster but I can't get it to start. There's some problem with the discovery of the R version which is causing the launch to fail
$ /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/rsession --standalone=1 --program-mode=server Listener bound to address 127.0.0.1 port 8787 08 Jul 2020 11:27:35 [rsession-andrewss] ERROR system error 2 (No such file or directory) [path: ]; OCCURRED AT rstudio::core::Error rstudio::r::session::discoverR(rstudio::r::session::RLocations*) src/cpp/r/session/RDiscovery.cpp:62; LOGGED FROM: int main(int, char* const*) src/cpp/session/SessionMain.cpp:2122
I'm using a custom compiled R which is in the path.
$ which R /bi/apps/R/3.6.1/bin/R $ R --version R version 3.6.1 (2019-07-05) -- "Action of the Toes"
I've tried setting RSTUDIO_WHICH_R in case that was the issue, but that didn't make any difference
I also tried setting the R version in a config file but the setting doesn't seem to be recognised.
$ /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/rsession --config-file=rsession.conf --standalone=1 --program-mode=server --log-stderr=1 --session-timeout-minutes=0 --launcher-token /tmp/rstudio-server-andrewss/secure-cookie-key --user-identity=andrewss --www-port=8080 Error reading rsession.conf: unrecognised option 'rsession-ld-library-path'
Since this is a cluster I don't have the option of putting R into /usr/bin/ or /usr/local/bin/ so any ideas of how to ammend the configuration to get this going would be appreciated.
