not idle

If like me you decided to stick to Long Term Support versions of Ubuntu, and miss some of the new stuff in R 3.1+ such as XGBoost, you probably found out that you can’t install them due to some missing packages (namely plyr) for R 3.0.

One option is to add R’s repositories and install from there:

Another option is to grab the DEB files for Utopic Unicorn (14.10) already at 3.1, which happens to have no upgraded dependencies:

Good luck!
