PL/R Extension RPM Fails to Install

Problem

Installing the VMware Postgres PL/R extension RPM displays this message:

error: Failed dependencies:
    libR.so()(64bit) is needed by vmware-postgres14-plr-extension-14.0-0.el7.x86_64

Resolution

R must be installed before you install the PL/R extension. Install R from the EPEL repo using these commands:

$ sudo yum install epel-release
$ sudo yum install R

After R has been installed, you can use yum to install the VMware Postgres PL/R extension RPM.

See Installing VMware Postgres for full installation procedures.
