For future reference: upgrading to R 2.14 on Ubuntu 11.10

Today, I needed to upgrade from R 2.13 to R 2.14 on ubuntu 11.10, because I wanted to install the "tm" package.

The line I added to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb oneiric/

From there, it's just a simple
   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install r-base
   sudo apt-get install r-base-dev
