WINE & partition

  Date: Nov 30    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 448

I'm running 10.04 on an old Gateway laptop with a 40 gig drive that's all one
boot partition. There are no Windows programs loaded yet I logged into WINE
and it asked me if I wanted to look at the C: partition.

Am I to assume from this that I have to allocate part of my 40 gig to a new
partition into which I load my Windows progs? If so, how do I create that
partition at this stage?

Wine does not require a separate partition. It creates a virtual C: drive
right within the existing linux filesystem. Apps are fooled into believing
it is really a Windows partition and so they install there.

Yes. It is found at .wine/drive_c/ in the home folder. The user needs to
enable hidden files to see the folder. Unlike a VM where you establish a
size ahead of time, this one grows as you need it.
