For testing, I suggest you use a virtual machine.

You can find the instructions by the link below:

Subject: [Rcpp-devel] Debugging Rcpp for Solaris


I submitted a package to CRAN that passed all checks in RStudio but failed when it was tested on Solaris (after it was on CRAN). Now I need to correct the error and resubmit to CRAN. I would like to avoid using CRAN as a debugging tool. Is there a way to check packages on Solaris? I am using Windows 10.

The packages checks are here https://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_results_BiProbitPartial.html

An excerpt of the error is below

BiProbitPartialMCMC.cpp:424:49: error: call of overloaded ‘log(bool)’ is ambiguous

         double SupportRatio = log(abs(rhoStar)<1) - log(abs(rho)<1);


There is a similar error for the second log function. It seems I can simply fix it with an if/else statement, but I would like to check it before submitting back to CRAN.
