Re: Problems Mounting HFS on Mac & Linux
Somewhat on topic:
yesterday i got a new hard disk, partitioned it exactly like my old one,
and copied over the linux partitions using tar. one of the partitions on
that disk was a macosHFS exchange partition, and i decided to use macos
to copy the files over, mainly because i've observed the hfs support in
the linux kernel to be a little buggy (sometimes hangs the machine).
so over in macos, i couldnt copy the files (i got a number of finder
errors). using diskwarrior on the partition, it found probably 100
inconsistencies in the directory structure. after writing out the fixed
directory, i was able to copy it over.
i guess the moral of this story is that linux hfs support is apparently
not 100% correct, and you should excersise caution when writing to hfs
volumes from linux.
