I'm about to switch from Mac OS/X 10.4 to Ubuntu. Will it be possible to read and use the data from a mac-formated harddisk with Ubuntu? It's a 120 GB Seagate, maybe 2 years old.
Thanks for your help.
You're welcome, and welcome aboard.
This may help you:
Check out the MAN page (type in "man mount") for the mount command. Specifically, you want to use the file system type of hfs, like:
mount -t hfs <your device name> <your mount point>
like "mount -t hfs /dev/sda2 /media/macdrive"
FWIW, I'd probably copy the data off of the Mac formatted drive, and re-format the device as ext3, since you're making the move to Linux.
