Thanks for trying to help guys, I appreciate it.
My confusion stems from running out of space and seeing what seems to be a lot of duplication of files. Files in /home/guest/ and in /mnt/live/memory/changes and in /mnt/live/memory/images/changes. It makes trying to find things confusing, knowing when you find something whether it's current, changed or save.dat'ed.
This frustration comes from working with the PlayOnLinux module and Wine. When initially activated they are HUGH!! Installing a simple Windows card game with PlayOnLinux eats up 577 MB in /home/guest/.PlayOnLinus AND in /mnt/live/memory/changes/home/guest/.PlayOnLinux. And when I try to use the make a module approach suggested for /var/usm/ the copy of the 577 MB folder to /tmp/POL/ runs out of space. Here's a few of the many:
Code: Select all
cp: failed to extend ‘/tmp/POL/home/guest/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/MicrosoftSpider/playonlinux.log’: No space left on device
cp: error writing ‘/tmp/POL/home/guest/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/MicrosoftSpider/playonlinux.cfg’: No space left on device
cp: failed to extend ‘/tmp/POL/home/guest/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/MicrosoftSpider/playonlinux.cfg’: No space left on device
The space problem results in Firefox loosing it's Bookmark bar and error msgs informing me it can't save passwords and other files. Similar msgs from closing spaceFM.
I've increased my save.dat file from 256 MB to 394 MB then to 512 MB but it hasn't helped. I've deleted the /var/usm/ folder which saved me 146 MB but it didn't help. I made the Wine app a 170 MB module and that didn't help either.
It takes about 1/2 hr for the PlayOnLinux to download it's Wine and other dependencies and if I don't stop the update of my save.dat file when rebooting I end up with a corrupted file.
So now you see why I am confused?
