Generally to install R dependent packages we use below command on R shell.

install.packages(c("rJava", "Rcpp", "RJSONIO", "bitops", "digest","functional", "stringr", "plyr", "reshape2", "dplyr","R.methodsS3", "caTools", "Hmisc"))

For R hdfs packages you need to download the package and installed it like below.

Download packages rhdfs, rhbase, rmr2 and plyrmr from https://github.com/RevolutionAnalytics/RHadoop/wiki and install them

install.packages("<path>/rhdfs_<version>.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source")
install.packages("<path>/rmr2<version>.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source")
install.packages("<path>plyrmr_<version>.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source")
install.packages("<path>/rhbase_<version>.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source")

Here is good doc link for R on hadoop.
