First you have to remove the old packages, then install the new
ones (thought that was obvious).

Recheck the page above, there is a link to the new official package
(they have accepted the changes):


R CMD INSTALL Rdbi_1.0.2.tar.gz
R CMD INSTALL RdbiPgSQL_1.0.2.tar.gz

Note that you cannot use an old .RData workspace due to the name
change (Rdbi.PgSQL -> RdbiPgSQL).

Please report this to the Rdbi maintainer:
Jianhua Zhang

Please let us know if/when they fixed it.
