Thank you so much for you assistance.

My problem is not solved, because I must install R, etc. on a different Volume like SYS-Volume & I can´t find this option under "homebrew".....

For me it usually had to resort to the latter when there were connectivity issues (more common in Namibia than in Potsdam :-)-O).

And maybe once or twice when I wanted to try something special.

It also has a 'cask' option with which it installs apps so I do

brew install r
brew cask install rstudio

All in all rock solid.
