Is there any way to mount Mac external HD ( probably MAC OS extended (journaled HFS++ ) on a recent Puppy Linux? which Puppy support it?
I found an old topic about it : http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13808.
What about Puppy 528 or other recent Puppies that can open this "locked proprietary box"?

I hate proprietary hardware , but what to do, some friend would like to share files with me, and they are Mac dependent.

I have booted my two-year old iMac with Slacko 531 and got on the internet with it, so it is at least somewhat compatible. I have no idea if this will help you or not.

Both 528 and Slacko have the hfs modules. As Flash questioned- which Pup?

just do this part, if the modules are in there (you can test by doing the modprobe line)

modprobe hfsplus
mount -t hfsplus -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
rox /mnt/sdb1

assuming you only have one internal and it's the first usb drive with hfs+ (probably is + at this point).

adjust sdxx for drive and partition.

On Macpup528,
Pmount does not see it . This was my ounly test.
Is a good news that puppyes can have hsf+ modules.
So next time I will have this mac HD with me,
I will try with Slako, or mounting it manually as John Doe suggest.

This is what I get:


Code:

sh-4.1# modprobe hfs
sh-4.1# modprobe hfsplus
sh-4.1# mount -t hfsplus -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /mnt/sdb1 busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is already mounted on /mnt/sdb1
sh-4.1# rox /mnt/sdb1
sh-4.1#


The drive mounts but I don't see the HFS+ partition.

So what should I do next?

Code:

sh-4.1# mount -t hfsplus -o rw /dev/sdb2 /mnt/sdb2
mount: mount point /mnt/sdb2 does not exist
sh-4.1#


Am I doing something wrong?

Does a folder named /mnt/sdb2 exist?
Easy to create with mkdir command.

And for that matter, it could be named anything. The fact that it doesn't exist should've tipped you off..

So creating a /mnt/sdb2 directory will make a difference? I'm on the Mac side at the moment but tomorrow I will try what don570 suggests and se what happens after I run
Code:
mount -t hfsplus -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
again.
