WIne disk full error


Hello

Sorry for the post, i googled some about the Wine Disk Full, but i only got some ubuntu approaches and a winehq one (yep i know, linux is linux and almost all solutions work on it ()http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=179565) but when i want to create the symlink, it doesn't create it.

On console i write
$ln -s /home/Xuser/.wine/drive_z/home/Xuser->/home/Xuser

And it doesn't create it ... (or maybe i'm doing something wrong? )

I wonder if these are the only approaches?

Does somebody has the key to fix this ?

Thank you very much

I don't understand why these symbols "->" are there?

They were showing the text of a directory listing not giving you the command. The correct command to run would be:
Code:
ln -s /home/Xuser/.wine/drive_z/home/Xuser /home/Xuser
Looking at it though it seems to be linking a directory used by WINE to your home directory so it's probably useless.
Edit: Is your disk full? When you type:
Code:
df -H
what does it display?

Glad it works for you.
Would you mind posting your solution so that others can learn from it?

Who in there right mind has someone do that

that is a prime example of a snake eating it's own tail
And that should cause a full disk ( well the 95% default)

now the linking that "might be done might be something like
Code:
ln -s  /home/Xuser /home/Xuser/.wine/drive_z/home/Xuser
there is a very big difference in that over the one above

you were blindly just doing something from 2006 FOR a DIFFERENT operating system
in regards to installing old games on a fat32 partition
and a partition format that can never be used for a $HOME partition on a linux system

Hi John VV.

Yep i know that i was blindly following something for another OS, sorry for that, but i haven't found a Slackware solution for that ... The only thing that i do is making another drive in winecfg and slecting the folder where i wanted the application to install and use (sounds weird but it worked). Wonder why wine doesn't see the disk free space ...

But well, i hope someday this solution helps anyone using our beloved Slackware ...
