In the last couple of hours,

I did a partition use "disk utility" in Mac,
and then move to the linux, format the second partition into ext4.

/dev/sdb3 on /media/GoFlexMac type hfsplus (ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks)
/dev/sdb5 on /media/GoFlexLinux type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks)

Thanks again and have a nice weekend,
