Default R installating packages through ssh

Dear all,

the following is not really a *seq-question, but if someone had an answer, this would be most appreciated.

I need to install R on a Mac, to which I only have access by ssh.

So I did the following:
sudo curl > R-3.2.1-snowleopard.pkg
sudo installer -pkg R-3.2.1-snowleopard.pkg -target myDisk

(myDisk is a placeholder)

Basic R functions work. E.g. this
> x=c(1:100)
> summary(x)
Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max.
1.00 25.75 50.50 50.50 75.25 100.00

But now I want to install add-on packages. So I try
> install.packages("hash")
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---

upon which I get the error message

"2016-04-17 13:00:02.355 X11[16550:8804654] Failed to connect (primary_text_field_cell) outlet from (AppDelegate) to (NSTextFieldCell): missing setter or instance variable" when R dies.

I assume it tries to use X11 and can't ...

Can anyone tell me how to circumvent this ? E.g. can I force it to give me the list of CRAN mirrors within the terminal ?

Any help would be very much appreciated!
