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
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
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:
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”.
That would be hfsutils (without hyphen). However these tools are not used to mount hfs partitions over a directory. There are used to read or write hfs volumes in a similar way that the mtools utilities handle DOS volumes. You can use them too. This is a different approach.
See man hfsutils and the manpages of the different commands: hmount, hcopy, etc.
I did create a new one but when it didn’t work, I tried changing the mount point and the type just to test. I have two hfs+ partitions, when I changed to the other partition, it worked! Now it works with everything, even my external. Thanks a lot for your help
