    Hi!

    Since I have a lot of apps, every one of them is telling me that my disk is full. So i decided to move them all and create a symlink to the media partition.

    in SSH I did:
    mkdir /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications
    cp -r /Applications/* /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications
    rm -rf /Applications && ln -s /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications /Applications

    Everything works, the link works. But when I reboot. No more apps. Nothing, and I'm unable to connect through ssh.

    So it's been 5 times, 5 restores. lol

    Do you have any idea of what's happening there?


    Thanks

    that sounds like a permissions problem. move it to somewhere other than /private/var/root. the mobile user probably can't view them in root's home folder.

    edit: yes, i can't enter root's folder when logged in as mobile.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I created a /private/ROOT_Applications folder instead and now it works fine!!
