I am trying to install a package called RPostgreSQL inside analytical tool 
called R. This package help R analytical tool to connect database in 
PostgreSQL. There are different way to install it and path is already defined 
where package will be installed.

$ R
> install.packages("RPostgreSQL", repos='', 
> dependencies=TRUE)
##it will install taking file from cloud.

> install.packages("/home/forecash/cash_forecast/RPostgreSQL_0.6-2.tar.gz", 
> repos = NULL, type="source")
##taking data from downloaded Binary file

Or from shell
$R CMD INSTALL RPostgreSQL_0.6-2.tar.gz
##it means installing from binary file.

----Here is message I am getting----------------------------------------
address@hidden forecash]# R CMD INSTALL RPostgreSQL_0.6-2.tar.gz

This script, last modified 2011-10-19, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD

If the version you run (src/config.guess) is already up to date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to <address@hidden> in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

config.guess timestamp = 2011-10-19

The biggest question is from which location it is taking timestamp of 2011, we 
are not able to find this.

You will need to ass the providers of the files.  I am unfamiliar with "R CMD 
INSTALL" but based on your command line it appears that it is using the files 
as packaged in RPostgreSQL_0.6-2.tar.gz and I would assume that is where the 
files need to be replaced.
