Hi All,
I need to calculate VIF (variance inflation factor) for my linear regression model. I found there was a function named vif in 'HH' package. I have two questions:
1) I was able to install that package in my R under windows. But while trying to install that package in UNIX, I got error:
Package HH is not available.
Does somebody know why?
2) Does somebody know the other way to calculate vif in R?
Many thanks.

R. Michael Weylandt at Jul 11, 2012 at 11:04 pm ⇧ You're rather out of date with your version of R  if you want to use
the CRAN binaries provided by install.packages(), you usually have to
be at most one minor rev behind.
Try install.packages("car", type = "source")
But even better  update to a poppinfresh R 2.15.1: you get
parallelization, a bytecodecompiler, and all sorts of other goodies.
Best,

Hui Du at Jul 11, 2012 at 11:26 pm ⇧ Thanks, all. I will upgrade my R in linux but I suspect the root cause is some set up problem although I don't know how to trace it yet. I am not that familiar with R in Linux. If somebody could give me a clue how to diagnose this kind of problem, that will be great.

R. Michael Weylandt at Jul 11, 2012 at 11:58 pm ⇧ Which Linux are you running?
For distros with package managers, that's usually all you need. Also Check up on the RSIGDebian (including Ubuntu) or RSIGFedora as appropriate if you need more help.

Richard M. Heiberger at Jul 11, 2012 at 10:39 pm ⇧ Hui Du,
There is probably something wrong with either your setup or your choice of
CRAN
mirror. Both HH and car are present in CRAN for all platforms.
Your session info just arrived. "R version 2.11.1 (20100531)" is over
two years old.
The current version is "R version 2.15.1 (20120622)".
Upgrading R to the current version is recommended.
There might still be a problem with your setup as both HH and car worked
with 2.11.1.
