You probably have a dirty drive (crashed without unmounting it). This
requires running fsck. I don't know if there's a working hfs+ fsck for
linux, in the meantime, a fix is to boot OS X and back into linux. (You
can also verify/repair the partition by booting with the OS X install CD
and going to the disk utilities).
