Re: Problems mounting HFS+ partitions for writing

The hfsplus package contains hpfsck, but it's totally broken right now
and won't change for the forseeable future.  I've filed an ITP to
package something based on the Darwin sources and their experimental
Linux and FreeBSD ports.

More importantly, the HFS+ driver itself still likes to eat file
systems from time to time.  Mounting HFS+ partitions read-only seems
like a prudent thing to do in any case.
