Re: pkgsrc on Mac OS


I made a separate 5 GB volume when I set up pkgsrc on my OS X, and made it case 

Disk Utility in OS X is quite forgiving, I believe you can resize your current 
big volume and create a new one. If not, there are applications that can do it 
well and they don't cost much.

I agree it's annoying to have one extra partition, but it's a one-time thing.
