yup, same question here....
The solution below would work unless you don't have the proper
compilers, which would really amaze me.
In org-babel notation:
## To be run from ~ i.e. home/USER/
# make your own personal bin
tar xzf emacs-24.1.tar.gz
# Move into the directory
# I would use 'checkinstall -y' here but the following would also
# Now proceed with install ESS!
You can take the bash code in between the two *_src lines, paste it into
a file (properly named), make that file executable and let her rip.
If that doesn't work, then I would first have the head of the IT person
checked, then the OS checked/replaced...
