OpenMx on R 3.5.0 (2018-04-23)


I used the following code to install the latest version of OpenMx on macOS 10.13.4. I got the following error.

> source('')
You are now installing the latest version of OpenMx.Warning in install.packages :
  unable to access index for repository
  cannot open URL ''
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘OpenMx’ is not available (as a binary package for R version 3.5.0)  

I tried a second approach by downloading the latest binary version of the OpenMx for Mac. The link provided on the website does not work.

Thanks in advance

You're right about that dead

You're right about that dead link. I just fixed it. It was hardlinking to, which has been retired.

As for R version 3.5.0, we have not yet built, let alone deployed, any of our own builds for that version of R. I believe the automated "bleeding-edge" build for MacOS (the target of the aforementioned link) is using R 3.5.0, but I'm not completely sure. In any event, you may not want to install a bleeding-edge build, as our master git branch has been unstable recently (our nightly test suite hasn't passed since April 20th).

However, CRAN is now able to build MacOS binaries for R v3.5.0!

Have you figured it out?


I have the same problem now... I upgraded my R and then reinstalled the package, then I had the same warning. I tried to install the package from local and from terminal, neither worked. I have no idea about it now. Have you find a solution? Thanks in advance!
