Re: Still seeing if hfsplus is reliable with recent kernels (was: Re: 2-4-21-rc3-benh0 - hfsplus)

I ran into trouble some time ago backing up data from a Linux server to a Mac running OS X. I wasn't previously aware that HFS+ was case insensitive. I solved the problem by using UFS. In my case the file system was never directly mounted by a Linux system.

OS X >= 10.3 supports case sensitive HFS+. You have to create the file system from the command line as the option is not available in the GUI tools.

Try creating a new file system using something like this:
$ newfs_hfs -v "Volume Name" -J -s /dev/devicename

Unfortunately I don't know if the Linux hfsplus module supports this.

Thank you very much. I was fearing that it could be a sign of data
corruption, but I am much happier knowing that it is only a problem with
case sensitiveness.

Anyway, it seems that many files in the kernel have similar names that only
differ in the case of the characters (especially in the netfilter
sources). Of course, that's not to say anything about the .s and .S issue.

BTW, I see from your older posts that you seem to be quite involved in
cross-compilation. Do you happen to have any texts that you produced laying

Nice to have other people in the same state (or country, at least) working
with the same platform.  :-)

Thanks, Rogério.
