I'm not sure, but I got it via SVN. I don't see lme4a exposed anywhere on r-forge. As the web page suggests svn checkout svn://svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/lme4 [move to appropriate directory] cd pkg R CMD INSTALL lme4a [you'll need to have all the appropriate build tools installed] HOWEVER: lme4a is under EXTREMELY rapid (=unstable) development, and the current version is broken on my system -- I think (???) that there's a "mer.h" file that's supposed to have been added but didn't get in. The current version on SVN is r685; I had to back up to r679 to get a working version. r680 log says "Removing definitions no longer used" -- perhaps something extra got removed? (I have mucked around with things a bit, so there's an outside chance that this is my fault -- can anyone else confirm?) glee wrote: > I am attempting to following along with Douglas Bates book draft. > > R Forge claims that the following works automatically: > > install.packages("lme4a", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org") > > but I get > > … package ‘lme4a’ is not available. > > Attempting to obtain the source manually from the lme4 project page > (which points to): > > http://r-forge.r-project.org/src/contrib/lme4a_0.999375-46.tar.gz > > produces page not found. > > I presume this means something is broken?
