Is there a way to have Sage interface to the latest R version installed elsewhere on my computer instead of the version that comes with Sage?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9371/use-different-r-version-than-the-one-included/?answer=14089#post-id-14089I have no idea if this will work, but you could try:
- removing the files `SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/R` and `SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/Rscript`, and creating instead (symbolic) links pointing to the R installation you want to use.
- do similarly with the directory `SAGE_ROOT/local/lib/R/`Sun, 30 Sep 2012 12:08:28 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9371/use-different-r-version-than-the-one-included/?answer=14089#post-id-14089Comment by kcrisman for <p>I have no idea if this will work, but you could try:</p>

You could also try upgrading the spkg - see the developer guide for how to change spkgs.Mon, 01 Oct 2012 02:17:25 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9371/use-different-r-version-than-the-one-included/?comment=18954#post-id-18954
