issues : Login in RStudio, SWIRL Package installation and R 3.1.0 installation

Issues & Solution : R and RStudio
Tried to access Rstudio via HTTP using default port 8787. http://localhost:8787.

Error
In my first login i was given root as a username and password. got below error

Solution
Create new user called ruser.
root@solaiv[bin]# adduser ruser
Adding user `ruser' ...

Refreshed the browser and login with newly created user credentials


Error
R version 3.1.0, while configure R
root@solaiv[R-3.1.0]# ./configure

configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not available configure: error: --with-x=yes (default) and X11 headers/libs are not available
Solution
do not need R to be built with this library, you can simply set with-readline to "no":
root@solaiv[R-3.1.0]# ./configure --with-x=no --with-readline=no
