as armonox said, HFS+ support has been around for a bit but writing and journaling don't go together.
time machine says journaling needs to be enabled to work, but fedora says journaling needs to be disabled to work. but i have heard a few people mention using a samba share as a time machine backup; this is in direct contradiction to that first sentence. i was wondering if anyone had successfully done this, if so how?
Distribution: Vector Linux 5.1 Std., Vector Linux 5.8 Std., Win2k, XP, OS X (10.4 & 10.5)
Just to follow up it appears that OS X 10.5 has some "issues". One the most vexing are inconsistent problems with connecting to,reading and writing to Samba shares. It seems that unpatched Leopard will work for some users but patched Leopard introduces a more consistent pattern of "breaks" in file sharing to and from Samba servers.
i was trying to do just the thing. Had a mac at work which we kept all our music on for streaming during the arduous hours of the workday and after the motherboard fried I wanted to swap it to another system...mounting -t hfsplus worked like a charm and saved me hours of head vs. wall time.
It has been a year since the last post. Can I mount a partition with hfs+ and WRITE to it ? I am trying to make Mac and Linux to be able to read
and write a common portable drive (at home, I use linux while at work Mac, and I carry my drive around). I googled and found that it is rather disappointing that Mac does not
recognized ext3 (well, there is a buggy driver I don't even what to try).
Thanks for sharing !
It has been a while since I dealt with my issue (I'm sure that things have changed significantly in the past two years), but when I was dealing with the problem I am pretty sure that I could only read the hfs+, no writing, when I was using Linux (I believe it was either FC8 or 10).
Why don't you do FAT, I've never had a problem reading or writing to them no matter what OS I was running? Everybody loves FAT partitions!
(nb - I make no claims of understanding the nuisances of the computer science world ... just what I need to do to get the job done. I'm sure somebody will tear me apart for suggesting FAT ; )
Distribution: Fedora 12, Ubuntu 10.10, Linux Mint 10
another option to this vexing problem is to use a windows emulator to install macdrive... this way you would gain WRX capabilities under any linux kernel... the only problem i am encountering is i cant disable the initial mac capabilities... (previously referenced) if i could disable the initial HFS+ support then i would have complete WRX access to my mac drives, or at least this is my theory... any ideas?
