Oh, and do you have X11 set up in order to run Wine? X11 is no longer shipped with Mountain Lion or Mavericks, as I understand it.
I am trying to run a program called Metatrader. It is a required platform for my work. It ran perfectly fine until today. The thing is my government blocked twitter, youtube and disabled any DNS to be working besides the Turkish ISPs so I installed lots of stuff, VPNs etc and none worked so with the PC mentality I have, I just reformatted my Mac Mini.
I am installing playonmac now and will report.
EDIT : This whole thing proved me that I need Time Machine right away. So I have a 600GB USB2.0 HDD and I want to partition it. 200GB for pictures and videos that will only be stored on that HDD and never on the mac mini and remaining 400GB as Time Machine as I believe I will never have more than 100GB of software on my mac mini.
So the question is how can I partition my external HDD (without deleting the contents if possible) and can I run time machine on the 2nd partition of that HDD.
The HDD is formatted on journal format.Edited by iARDAs - 3/31/14 at 8:56am
