    Error in installing DBI_0.2-5_R_x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz


      I can install all other packages without a problem.
      However, for DBI_0.2-5_R_x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz, I always got an error.

      [rdf@semperf3 supporting]# /usr/bin/R CMD INSTALL DBI_0.2-5_R_x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz
      * installing to library â/usr/lib64/R/libraryâ
      ERROR: failed to lock directory â/usr/lib64/R/libraryâ for modifying
      Try removing â/usr/lib64/R/library/00LOCK-DBIâ

      For other packages, I got something like the following.

      * DONE (png)
      Making packages.html ... done
      [rdf@semperf3 supporting]# /usr/bin/R CMD INSTALL ROracle_1.1-2_R_x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz
      * installing to library â/usr/lib64/R/libraryâ
      * installing binary package âROracleâ ...

      I am using 64 Bit Oracle on a 64 Bit Linux machine.

      Linux 2.6.18- #1 SMP Tue Feb 10 15:14:47 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      Any idea?
