Question Easy Mounting of HFS+ Partitions, Ubuntu 6.06 Distro...


Greets, :-)

I am running ubuntu 6.06 (dapper).

I have been reading the posts on hfs+ partition mounting here at linuxquestions.org.

I find the instructions a bit confusing. :--(

I downloaded the hfsplus-20040216.tar.gz file.

I am unsure of the next step.

I can execute a script command in terminal, if need be, but I am unsure on how to create the script file (extension?), where to put it, and the needed commands, heh.

The hfs+ partition is journaled.

Any input or information is appreciated, :--D

Cheers :>

Feb 2004, more than 3 years old. I'd say ancient considering rapid OSS development. AFAIK there is kernel driver for HFS+. Not sure if it's included with Ubuntu, you may need to build your own kernel.

So you run the PPC Ubuntu, I thought you want to mount an external HFS+ drive from a PC. What exactly is the problem then? Did you try mount command from terminal? Are you saying your kernel does not support HFS+?
