    Problem installing Oracle R Connector for Hadoop package

    958681
      Hi all,

      I have installed R distribution from CRAN open source and trying to install the ORCH package(which is a zip file) using:

      R CMD INSTALL orch -l /package/location

      but it did not get installed.

      Does ORCH works with the above R distribution and if yes how to install this package?

      Thanks in advance for help.

      Regards,
      Rakesh Kumar Rakshit

          Hi,

          I found a documentation here :
          [ http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27101_01/doc.10/e27365/start.htm#CHDJIBGI]

          This documentation specified that the downloaded file is orhc.tgz.zip file whereas I am downloading and getting orch.zip file.

          I am downloading it from here:
          [http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/bdc/big-data-connectors/downloads/index.html]

          Please help.

          Regards,
          Rakesh

            Hi Rakesh,

            ORCH will also work with R from CRAN.

            Please try the following steps:

            1. Unzip the orch_1.1.zip file. E.g.:
            unzip orch_1.1.zip

            2. Install ORCH package from directory. E.g.:
            R CMD INSTALL ORCH

            At this point you should see the following log (or similar):

            R CMD INSTALL ORCH
            * installing to library ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.15/Resources/library’
            * installing source package ‘ORCH’ ...
            ** R
            ** inst
            ** preparing package for lazy loading
            ** help
            No man pages found in package ‘ORCH’
            *** installing help indices
            ** building package indices
            ** testing if installed package can be loaded
            *** arch - i386
            <... and more ...>

            3. Remove ORCH source directory, you don't need it any more. E.g.:
            rm -rf ORCH
