Change the location of the GarageBand libraries
Authored by: vineetb on Jan 20, '04 12:28:07PM

What a space saver on my Powerbook!!

There is a SymbolicLinker which adds "Make Symbolic Link" context menu (right-click) in Finder.

But the ln command works fine as well.

Thanks.

Okay, SL (SymbolicLinker) seems to be the way to go, but how do you handle SymLinks in the Finder? I create the SymLink of the copied GB lib folder in the new dest folder and then tried to copy it back to the original location folder on the boot volume....the Finder then tries to copy the original folder back - complete with original contents! The Finder is behaving correctly here, I guess!!

So how do I create a SymLink of the GB libs with SL??

Sorry for being a dumba** here!! ;)
