Thread: Remove HFS filesystem from blacklist.

  1. #1

    Default Remove HFS filesystem from blacklist.

    when I try to mount an HFS filesystem i get the following error:

    Error mounting /dev/sdc4 at /run/media/rick/Disk: unknown filesystem type 'hfs' (hint: possibly blacklisted)

    Is there a way to remove HFS from the blacklist in an Opensuse 15.3 install?

    hfs is listed in /etc/filesystems.

    How do you mount it?

    Post the complete commandline and the complete output.

    Seeing his error I message assume that it is mounted by the desktop. Thus he can not reproduce the exact command.

    @rick71, you could try to mount it from the CLI:
    Code:
    mount /dev/sdc4 /mnt
    so we can see the exact messages.

    Also, the message says "possibly". Your conclusion seems to be that it is and thus that removal can be done. But first you must be sure that that is the case.

    I insert a Zip disk into a USB Zip drive, the icon shows up on the desktop. I double click on the icon and get the above message.

    I have read threads about blacklisting several file systems in SLES and OpenSuse.
    How do I check if the filesystem is actually blacklisted.

    Sure:
    Code:
    erlangen:~ # cat /usr/lib/modprobe.d/60-blacklist_fs-hfs.conf 
    # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE! 
    # 
    # The hfs file system is blacklisted by default because it isn't actively 
    # supported by SUSE, not well maintained, or may have security vulnerabilites. 
    blacklist hfs 
    # The filesystem can be un-blacklisted by running "modprobe hfs". 
    # See README.md in the suse-module-tools package for details. 
    install hfs /usr/lib/module-init-tools/unblacklist hfs; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install hfs

    Install hfsprogs and hfsutils, as root:
    Code:
    mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdXY /media/mntpoint

    Have a read: https://github.com/openSUSE/suse-mod...ster/README.md (found this with a bit of googling).

    in my system it seems indeed to be blacklisted:
    Code:
    boven:/lib/modprobe.d # l *hfs*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 415 May  7 23:18 60-blacklist_fs-hfs.conf
    boven:/lib/modprobe.d #
