If you start from
https://ch301.cm.utexas.edu/section2...m/rydberg.html
first equation on this page it is very easy to derive

If you start from R = mee4/(8 e02h3c) then it's harder

me has units kg
e has units As
epsilon naught has units F/m
h has units Js
c has units m/s

Simplify units for epsilon naught and h, then replace, then simplify
