I need an operating system for ARMv6 (Raspberry Pi) that can reliably mount HFS+ Journaled as read/write, with volume sizes up to 16TB.
I've not been able to find details on how stable HFS+ Journaled is in the latest versions of the Linux Kernel.
According to a possibly outdated Wikipedia article, there are several issues with HFS+ Journaled in Linux but work is underway to resolve this:
"As of February 2011, work is in progress to lift this restriction" http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=HFS_Plus&oldid=549625057#Linux
I've also looked into using Darwin or NetBSD as Apple uses these so hoped there would be an official driver, but no luck:
- I can't find a way to compile Darwin for the Raspberry Pi as Apple haven't released the source code for ARM, and http://sourceforge.net/projects/darwin-arm/ seems to have been removed
- As far as I can tell, Apple haven't released the NetBSD HFS+ drivers used on the Apple Airport
Can anyone answer
- Are the stability issues of HFS+ in Linux fixed? (and how I can track this?)
- If it's still unstable, can anyone recommend a stable alternative?
