Re: Sharing an hfsplus partition between Linux and MacOSX
Thank you a lot for the indications.
I solved as you suggested by alligning the ids between the two systems.

I just finished installing the kernel 2.6.14 with HFS and HFSPLUS

possibile to read and write on Mac HFS extended partitions.
I verified that it is indeed possible but I can do this only with root
permissions and not as a common user.
Below my current fstab, although I tried already several other
ways to mount the partition. When mounted hfs partitions receives uid
"501" and gid "dialout". Adding this group in /etc/group and the name
the user as member of the group does not solve the problem.
You can fix this by changing you uid from whatever is now to 501 and
change the id of the dialout group not to overlap with the one that is
the default in MAC OS X.
Mount the partition then under group (macosxwr, let's call it) and
with the appropriate umask to allow the writing for the group.
