Almost There

It’s been a long wait, but it’s almost over… Ever felt like you started a term paper over and over? Never really getting the mojo to finish it? That’s how I felt creating an ubuntu package for rApache. They should be available in a few hours on, i386 and amd64 at least. Here’s the sources.list entries:

deb lucid main
deb-src lucid main

and check out apt-cache show libapache2-mod-rstats!

$ apt-cache show libapache2-mod-rstats
Package: libapache2-mod-rstats
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: web
Installed-Size: 132
Maintainer: Jeffrey Horner
Architecture: i386
Version: 1.1.9
Depends: apache2-mpm-prefork | apache2-mpm-worker, apache2.2-common, libapreq2, r-base-core
 /etc/apache2/mods-available/mod_R.load 7c2a365b630f0f721ff549cce273c493
Description: Apache module for running server-side R programs
 This package provides the R module for the Apache 2 webserver. Note
 that it will work with either Apache's prefork or worker MPM. Prefork
 is preferred.
 R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
 By embedding R inside Apache, developers can create dynamic web pages and
 graphics.  Even more compelling is the ability for developers to provide
 web service style access to novel, cutting edge statistical techniques.
