problems in installing bs package

EACH TIME I TRY TO INSTALL bs package I get the following error message . can someone offer assistance on how to get through successfully.
Error: package ‘bs’ was built before R 3.0.0: please re-install it

library("bs", lib.loc="~/R/win-library/3.4")
Error: package ‘bs’ was built before R 3.0.0: please re-install it
Warning: unable to access index for repository
cannot open URL

Did you try running the following command?


It looks like the bs package was removed from CRAN, so I don't think that will work either.

The archived version is from 2007, and (as the error states) was built before R 3.0.0 (it looks like the releases in 2007 were 2.5.0 and 2.6.0 The R-announce 2007 Archive by date).

I did . Its an archived package . each time it requests for namespace no matter the installation path followed. In fact I have the zipped targaz package in a folder but it wont run.

This isn't terribly surprising, given what I mentioned in my comment above. If you're looking for functionality around the Birnbaum-Saunders distribution, you might consider a different package's implementation:"Birnbaum+Saunders"


Thanks . I think things are going to work out now.

the remedy was installing an older version of r program. it worked smoothly. thanks
