Fail to install DESeq2 Ubuntu 13.04

After trying to install the DESeq2 library

> source("")
> biocLite("DESeq2")

I got a error because of a cascade of dependencies

DESeq2 <- genefilter <- annotate <- XML

Unfortunately biocLite could not resolve this cascade because of a external dependency

> install.packages("XML")


ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘XML’
* removing ‘/usr/local/lib/R/site-library/XML’


The problem was that I dind’t have a system library installed. To solve it a had to run:

> sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev

and run the command again within the R environment :

> biocLite("DESeq2")

And everything gone well… Thats it
