What is needed to format SSD as hfsplus and to access (rw) hfsplus and fsck.hfsplus file system on an external usb3 connected SSD device (docking station)?
It seems that ‘yast2 partitioner’ doesn’t support hfsplus, but probably gparted can do it.
It seems that basic hfsplus support should be available in the kernel
without specifying the kernel version?
uname -r 5.3.18-59.37-default
An automounted SSD in my case:
df -Th /dev/sdj1 Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sdj1 hfsplus 477G 387M 477G 1% /run/media/terje/untitled
The only ‘hfs’ packages I’ve found for Leap 15.3 is ‘hfsutils’ v. 3,2,6 and ‘xhfsutil’ (front-end), but it seems to be for the previous hfs file system and not for hfsplus?
What about 'hfsprogs, and ‘hfsplus-tools’ packages for Debian and Fedora, isn’t there available and need for a corresponding packages for Leap 15.3?
