My Machine is rhel 8.3
I installed R 4.1.0 with tar.gz file and I can able to open R from terminal without issues.
then I installed rstudio -server 1.4-1106 version.... But, it is failing to start immediately.

rstudio-server verify-installation shows --- no errors --

Hello, I think this is very similar to your problem.

Hope this help.

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your reply.
I see no errors when I run the below command. You can also see it at first line on the uploaded image.

sudo rstudio-server verify-installation

My path is also correct and located

/usr/local/bin/R

I don't have AppArmor profile As I am using RHEL 8.

But, rstudio server is failing to start. Any other leads to check and fix this issue...!

After checking, I have the hypothesis that could be the path

Meanwhile in your error, lib appears first.


Try to put urs/local instead urs/lib

In your installation the code=exited gives a Failure.
if you see, the problem is this failure with exit-code


Therefore, try a different installation path.

If this is not the problem, I dont know what could be. :pensive:
Sincerely hope this helps.

What do you mean by that? Did you compile your own version of R? If yes, did you use --enable-R-shlib during the configure step? See RStudio Install R from Source - RStudio Documentation for our recommendations for how to compile R and RStudio Install R - RStudio Documentation for appropriate binary builds.
