Thank you for your reply and advice.
If you are using the R from Cygwin Ports, it must be an old package since
R is no longer offered there. I suggest you install the R package from the
Cygwin distribution instead and retry. Since this list supports the Cygwin
distribution only, this would put your issue firmly on-topic for this list
if you can still reproduce it. For Cygwin Ports packages, they are
supported through the Ports site:
If you have a package from that site and have questions, problems, or
comments, it's best to consult the mailing list there.
I got confused in my first email for some reason, but I'm definitely
using R (version 2.15.1) from the Cygwin distribution, not the ports.
I just made a clean R installation just to make sure and I still get
the same error message:
In file included from IntervalTree.c:3:0:
common.h:59:24: fatal error: mingw/math.h: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/R/etc/Makeconf:121: recipe for target `IntervalTree.o' failed
make: *** [IntervalTree.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package ‘IRanges’
* removing ‘/usr/lib/R/site-library/IRanges’
I've read there are some other problems with MinGW these days, maybe
this one is related?
In any case, is there anything I can do to try to solve the issue?
Bioconductor is vital to me and using R from within Windows is causing
me a lot of headaches.
could you clarify your issue with the R cygwin package ?
Are you trying to compile some addon ? How ?
