JAGS, rjags, and coda packages for Fedora 13 i386 & 64 bitJune 4, 2010
I spent the morning working on writing up a RPM spec file to package and maintain JAGS in Fedora. So hopefully my spec file looks good and my RPM can promptly be included in Fedora (hopefully 13). The beauty of this is that after installing JAGS from my RPM you don’t need to tell rjags where to look for JAGS because it’s already in a place where rjags will look by default. Also you don’t have to compile JAGS.
EDIT: This afternoon I packaged up rjags and coda for Fedora (also submitted for review). I hope to start maintaining these in Fedora. If you want to use them and try them out click here for rjags 64 bit and here for coda (both i386 and 64 bit) . Coda is platform independent but rjags is for 64 bit only. If you want to install rjags and you’re on a i386, just install the two JAGS rpms (jags and jags-devel) from above and fire up R and run:
And that should be it.
