I am happily able to mount read/write a HFS+ ( non-journaled ) mac drive on my ubuntu 12.4 64 bit machine.
The size was 1 TB or 2 TB
But when I tried to mount a 5.4 TB drive I have problems
( note same drive works on a ubuntu 10.4 32 bit system )
the err diag is.
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
if I look at dmesg
[204213.746752] sd 15:0:0:0: [sdc] Very big device. Trying to use READ CAPACITY(16).
[204213.761752] sd 15:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI disk
[204214.116375] hfs: invalid secondary volume header
[204214.116380] hfs: unable to find HFS+ superblock
so in some googling I see that there is a Bug
and maybe a patch -- so my Q
is there a patch that will allow my Ubuntu 12.4 64bit machine
to mount this Large HFS drive.
how to get and how to use the patch?
