[Bug 49052] Re: no hfs+ journal support

Hi Luis,

I'm pretty sure that Linux is able to read/write hfs+ partitions,
however it ignores the journalling (ie. it treats a hfs+ partition as
hfs). I have a feeling that Feisty removed the hfs functionality because
of instability fears. It may be that Gutsy has replaced it..?

Alternatively, you could recompile your kernel adding HFS support...

(I'm not very knowledgeable about this, so take it with a grain of salt
- I've reformatted my ipod to FAT ;-)

Good luck,

ps. I was a little surprised to receive this email - I guess I've asked
a question somewhere..
