mount hfsplus (mac os file system) under Debian linux

Have an external hard disk with hfsplus or hfs+ partition on it? This is how you can mount it under linux (specifically, Debian) :

in os x :

  • disable journaling in the partition/external hdd in disk utility or use run the command “diskutil disableJournal /dev/disk1s1” in terminal.

in linux :

  • apt-get install hfs*
  • mount -t hfsplus -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/extdisk

Voila !!!
