[adegenet-forum] Problem installation on Ubuntu

Hi Thibaut,

I tried to reproduce the problem. Complete removal of the igraph package 
and R. Then after installing R, installing adegenet. igraph is then also 
installed as dependency and adegenet goes fine as well.

So, I'm guessing that I had either an old or somehow corrupted version 
of igraph. When installing adegenet, this old/corrupted version of 
igraph could not be loaded properly and thus adegenet could not be 

Let's hope that nobody else is experiencing this problem or than at 
least finds this threat.
