R version downgrade issue

HI Team,

In my production environment, R version got updated from 3.4.1 to 3.5.2. All my production application got affected and down because of this upgrade. We are manually downloading the 3.4.1 version and installing,. but we are facing issues like
checking whether zlib support suffices... configure: error: zlib library and headers are required

we have downloaded the above mentioned lib and referred. Issue is not resolved.

Could you please help on this.


It is for this reason that we strongly recommend you install R from source (or pre-compiled binaries). If you do this, you can have multiple versions of R side-by-side.

If, instead, you install R from yum or apt repositories, you will only have a single version of R.

You can find instructions to install R from pre-compiled binaries at https://docs.rstudio.com/resources/install-r/

Thanks Andrie.

We are unable to find the rpm for 3.4.1.

Could you please share the link for the same. Need it Immediately pl.

That's precisely the point - you won't be able to find an rpm for a specific version, because the rpm repositories will generally contain the latest version of R.

Hence our recommended action to install from pre-compiled binaries. You can find instructions for your operating system at https://docs.rstudio.com/resources/install-r/.

Using those instructions you can also determine the version(s) of R you want to install.

If you're having trouble with this, and if you're a commercial customer of RStudio, you can also open a support ticket at https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Thanks Andrie. We have downgraded the version and all the applications are working now..
