View Full Version : Installing wine in a different location than /home

December 25th, 2012, 09:02 PM
Hi guys, and merry Christmas!

I have the OS installed on a fast SSD HD.
/home partition though is mounted on a slow mechanical disk.
So I'd like to have Wine installed (with all the windows applications) installed in the SSD HD rtaher than in a hidden folder in the /home partition (which is far slower).
Does anybody knows how to (if possible) achieve that?

i've never tried myself, but im quite sure others already have done it, googling around might give you some ideas ):P

Yes. your wine prefix can be stored anywhere you have proper permissions.

I used to use wine but I found that virtual machine is the way forward for me. Maybe there is something about running windows software in their native environment just seems to work better IMO
