Re: hfs: write access to a journaled filesystem is not supported, use the force option at your own risk, mounting read-only.

Thanks for posting this link, Mathieu!

I had a USB drive formatted as hfs+ under OSX that I
couldn't get write access to.

After installing hfsprogs:

# fsck.hfsplus -q /dev/sdb1 

(file system reported as dirty)

# fsck.hfsplus -p /dev/sdb1

(file system reported fixed)

# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/mydisk

(write access!!)

Good luck with your issue.
