Post Mount .dmg file in Linux.


Hello.
I want to mount .dmg file in Linux but I got:
Code:
$ sudo mount -t hfsplus Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD.dmg /mnt/usb/
[sudo] password for jason: 
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.
Code:
$ dmesg | tail
[ 3320.071912] loop: module loaded
[ 3320.167901] hfsplus: unable to find HFS+ superblock
Any idea?

Thank you.

Have a look at this

You need to convert .dmg to .img then try mounting again.

Also, make sure you actually installed the hfsplus package.

I did it:
Code:
$ dmg2img Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD.dmg 1.img

dmg2img v1.6.5 (c) vu1tur (to@vu1tur.eu.org)

Mac OS X Install DVD.dmg --> 1.img


decompressing:
opening partition 0 ...             100.00%  ok
opening partition 1 ...             100.00%  ok
opening partition 2 ...             100.00%  ok
opening partition 3 ...             100.00%  ok
opening partition 4 ...             100.00%  ok
opening partition 5 ...             100.00%  ok

Archive successfully decompressed as 1.img
but got same error when mounting .img file !!!

you need the option:
Code:
$ mount -o loop 1.img /home/user/mnt
to mount a loop device (disk image).

More ideas.

Not sure I'd mount it on usb unless that is a directory not related to usb.
