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.

Firak, have you tried to mount the Mac hd in any Puppy?

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.
