Response to: Does CFMX end up in user CFMX/Public/Drop Box?

If you followed the procedure, the:


/Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box


contains the Trial download and the compressed archive containing the entire Linux installation (hundreds of directories and files)


You can see for yourself by going there in the Finder or entering the following into a Terminal window:


ls -l /Users/cfmx/Public/Drop\ Box


(the backslash escapes the blank character, so the path name will be correctly interpreted)


Now, when we expand this archive (at the root file level), it automatically creates a mirror image of the directory structure we created when we installed on linux -- it was installed in /opt.


/opt is a directory that typically is used to hold system-type software that is not part of the Unix distribution


Apple uses /Applications in a similar manner to hold Application programs that are available to any user who logs on the system


CFMX is not aware of the OS X tie-in between programs in /Applications and user files (created by the programs) stored in the users Documents directory.


I chose to follow the convention used by CFMX on Linux.
