Yep. I now see how my replies look like I am not providing new information, because I was not... My bad.
I actually figured it out, though, and only though an attempt to "purge" QuantLib's install.
Let me see if I can answer your questions:
"_How_ did you install QuantLib?"
I was following the steps found here: https://www.quantlib.org/install/linux.shtml
Problem was, the tar referenced by that page contains the latest version of QuantLib, 1.18. For whatever reason, though, some of my libquantlib* builds were for 1.17, so apparently, there was a conflict of some sort. When I uninstalled completely, e.g. "purged," and started from fresh, and then reinstalled, RQuantLib finally went all the way to install completion.
So, user error on my part... I suppose sometimes I need to take a look at the build versions to insure they are the latest, or at least referencing the same version.
Thanks for all the patience with this Dirk. I am converting over to Linux (using Ubuntu), so I am learning new things daily. Your videos on using the system are helping LOTS. Some of the "simple" things I used to know when I taught myself DOS 30+ years ago, are now becoming handy...
Thanks again for everything.
