Hello to All, 

I am having a real issue and I hope someone out there can direct me.  I
am moving a users R based system to a new Linux installation: 

3.10.0-327.13.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Mar 31 16:04:38 UTC 2016 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 

I have R installed but the user needs Cairo.  I got the latest version
of Cairo package: 


Then I do the following for installation under the users directory which
is where she needs it do R library call 

R CMD INSTALL -l /home/dsvehla/R Cairo_1.5-9.tar.gz 

I get the following every time - even if I use older versions of the

** R
** preparing package for lazy loading
** help
*** installing help indices
** building package indices ...
** testing if installed package can be loaded
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'Cairo', details:
call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
error: unable to load shared object
/home/dsvehla/R/Cairo/libs/Cairo.so: undefined symbol:
Error: loading failed
Execution halted
ERROR: loading failed
* removing '/home/dsvehla/R/Cairo' 

No matter where I look I cannot find an answer to this issue - I have
installed all ( I think ) dependencies for Cairo but still no go. 

Thanks  for your help
