RStudio desktop working on Raptor's power computer (ppc64le)?
« on: January 29, 2020, 03:06:21 pm »
I am using the statistical programming language R (which is available for ppc64le as ready-to-use package) a lot for data management and analytics
but the development IDE RStudio Desktop (https://rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/#download) is still not available.

Could anybody compile RStudio successfully on ppc64le?

BTW: RStudio Server seems to be available (I did not test it so far) but "only" dockerized:

URGENT REQUEST:

Since my Blackbird is defective and the RMA procedure is ongoing I am looking for a Power9 user to test an bug fix of a docker container which runs RStudio.

It would be great if someone could test the bug fix and post the results here (or in the github issue):

https://github.com/ppc64le/build-scripts/issues/131

The test is not much work, just installing (building) a docker container, starting an image and trying to start RStudio. Thats all:

https://github.com/ppc64le/build-scripts/tree/master/rstudio/Dockerfiles/v1.2.1335

THX :-)

Bump: It would be really great if if someone could do the simple test to be able to close the issue soon :-)
