Re: mounting a HFS drive on a Linux machine clobbers it?

So what is it? HFS or HFS+? Big difference for Linux cause different drivers

Not sure if OS X still recognizes a HFS drive. Maybe the partition table on the drive is no longer recognized. Wat do fdisk (in Linux and OS X) make
of it?
I'm sorry, you are correct: the 300G is indeed an HFS+ drive formatted from a OS X machine...

How did you partition and format the drive initially?
using Disk Utils in OS X

so again, why would mounting a HFS+ drive on a ext3 machine (Ubuntu PPC 5.04) make it so that it won't mount on an OS X machine afterwards?

and what can I do to fix this? short of reformatting the entire drive again and losing my backups?
