Namespace load failed when deploying R shiny app

Heya,
I am trying to deploy an R shiny app. This app uses an R package "pedicure" which I have placed onto GitHub at TolhurstStatisticalConsulting/pedicure. I have installed pedicure onto the R system library from this repository and it works fine. Currently this is a private repository, but the issue discribed below remains regardless of public/private.

pedicure depends on the Matrix package and imports the methods package. I am unsure if this is a package dependency issue, so my apologies if I have posted this issue in the wrong place!

Also note, I have not previously deployed this App so I can't turn the package cache off.

When deploying the app to the shiny server, I encounter the following error. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Are you committing pedicure.so into GitHub? If so, compiled for what architecture?

Hi Josh,
thank you for your reply! Indeed I had the wrong pedicure.so file on GitHub (compiled for Mac, not linux).

I have now committed pedicure.so (compiled for linux) to GitHub, but I encounter a new error...

In general, I don't believe it is intended that the compiled output is committed. It should be built for the platform on which the package is installed.

If pedicure can no longer be fetched, double check how it is installed locally, double check the permissions on the private GitHub repository, and double check that you have Private Repository Access checked in the shinyapps.io dashboard under Account -> Profile. If all of that looks good, try reseting the Private Repository Access by unchecking it, and then re-checking.
