I am fairly new to MAC. Just switched from Linux. Gnome 3.2 just was not my thing ...

I have my OS on a 120GB SSD, To preserve space I have my data and games on a 1tb RAID partition.

Creating wine prefixes on a different drive in Linux is pretty easy. How do I use PlayOnMac to do the same?

Thank you in advance :-)

Hi,

What is the format of your partition?

It is standard Mac OS format. Made the Raid0 volume with the built in disk utility. Worked fine.

It is - very originally - called: RAID-Mac

Then, you can simply make a symbolic link into Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix

Just to be sure:

I would like my games to go to: RAID-Mac/Games/PlayOnMac and only there.

Do I then write:

ln -s ~/Library/PlayOnMac/ RAID-Mac/Games/PlayOnMac/

And then everything I install via PlayOnMac goes there?

cd ~/Library
rm -r PlayOnMac
mkdir -p /Volumes/RAID_Mac/Games/PlayOnMac
ln -s /Volumes/RAID_Mac/Games/PlayOnMac

That should work :)
