# type name length base ( size ) sytem
/dev/sdb1 Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 ( 31.5k) Partition map
/dev/sdb2 Apple_Bootstrap untitled 1954 @ 64 (977.0k) NewWorld bootblock
/dev/sdb3 Apple_HFS Untitled 304968688 @ 15204352 (145.4G) HFS
/dev/sdb4 Apple_UNIX_SVR2 untitled 14445313 @ 2018 ( 6.9G) Linux native
/dev/sdb5 Apple_UNIX_SVR2 swap 757021 @ 14447331 (369.6M) Linux swap
