[Bug 49052] Re: no hfs+ journal write support by default (gets mounted as read only)


Its reasonably stable only journaling aspects are different from
mainline. Also I have attempted to fix problems with drivers bigger than
four TB the would result in corruption of the file system. The fix came
from an a proposal the upstream mailing list a while back not sure where
things went from there. Run apple's disk utility after using either
feature. In the case of large drives it should never find issues. For
journaling the results should be similar to what you get when OS X
replays the journal. I have it use on my machine.

  no hfs+ journal write support by default (gets mounted as read only)

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: linux-686

  Dapper Drake does not appear to support a HFS+ journaled file system. This manifests when I connect my ipod mini, and dmesg warns that:
  'HFS+-fs: write access to a jounaled filesystem is not supported, use the force option at your own risk, mounting read-only.'
  Using force appears to work to mount the device read/write. This was not a problem under Breezy, which makes me think that it's a kernel compilation issue.

  This occurs while running kernel linux-686

  Thanks! :-)
