Mutual disk space


Hi everyone, I am using an Apple iBook 14" (the newest one). I have Ubuntu installed with OS X. I find they are working great, apart for the slight setback of the non-compatibility of AirPort Extreme... but thats not what I'm writing for.

I am trying to find a way to swap files between OS X and Linux. I decided to make a partition with no OS. I looked around, and saw that a few FSs were not usable for one or the other. I saw something about Fat32, but I can't seem to mount my fat32 on OS X, and its read-only on Linux. UFS doesnt seem to work for Linux either, so I need some help. For now I am using my iPod for swapping files, but I find its a waste of my battery power when I'm on the fly.

Thanks for all the help provided.

If you have enabled at least module support for HFS+ in your kernel you can just mount your OS X partition in Ubuntu.

Not sure about the other way around though.

Um that's kind of complicated to answer. Perhaps someone with a better knowledge of kernel compilation can tell you how to compile the module after you've compiled the kernel...

What would imply compiling a new kernel? is it done in the terminal? is it done from the install CD? I really have no idea... so help would be greatly appreciated from anyone out there reading!
