Thread: Reading HFS+ on 11.4?

  1. #1

    Default Reading HFS+ on 11.4?

    Hi,
    I just decided to learn how to use opensuse(total newbie), I installed 11.4 on my macbook along with os x. At first I used to be able to read the two HFS+ partitions on the laptop after entering the password. But after looking up how to configure the system on the macbook(sound, grahpics....etc) I dunno if I messed up something or what, now I get this error whenever I try to mount the HFS+ partitions( I am still asked for authorization though):

    An error occurred while accessing 'Data', the system responded: org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Failed:Requested filesystem type is neither wll-known nor in /proc/filesystems nor in /etc/filesystems

    Anyone can help?

    Thanks

    What about adding a line like :
    Code:
    hfs
    in the /etc/filesystems file ?

    Or what about a install of the package hfs-utils

    I guess that simply adding that line does not install the software to support it. @Benmh's advice looks much beter to me. And you better do not change such system files like /etc/filesystems without having a very good reason and much understanding.

    Actually, HFS is is there already in the filesystem I checked it the second I got the error. At the beginning when I installed the OS, it used to read HFS(+) by default. Though now I dunno what I did to screw things up, that's why I thought that it might be better to fix what I ruined instead of trying to install something new

    It is a bit difficult for innocent people like us to find out what you did if you do not know yourself.

    Always take notes when you are changing the system.

    sorry, I am new to this, I just assumed that there would be a magic way to check . I installed hfsutils, I still get the same kind of error.

    Linux has read only support for journaled hfs+. Some people were able to mount hfs+ partitions read/write after disabling journaling under Mac OSX. You'll find posts about this topic in the forum. I never tried. To mount hfs+ from Linux on my iMac, I use the following line in /etc/fstab:

    Code:
    UUID=ccbbbd94-deb6-3a95-aadf-531952d1af33    /mac                               hfsplus       acl,user_xattr                   0   0
    where the partition is mounted by UUID in the mount point /mac. But you don't have to use this notation (although it never hurt). Use blkid under Linux to find out UUIDs. Your Mac partition should have the type "hfsplus".

    I still get the same error, I also tried

    Code:
     /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS545016B9SA02_090604PBDB00QCGHP31H-part2  /mnt           hfs       acl,user_xattr       0 0
    I tried changing the mount point, hfsplus to hfs. But nothing changed :/

    you should use hfsplus as fs type, not hfs !
    And don't use /mnt as fixed mount point in /etc/fstab! Create a directory and use it as mount point for your hfsplus partition.
