With the Beaglebone Black and the latest Debian image from here, I cannot mount a USB hard drive. Both partitions on the hard drive are formatted as HFS+ (used for Time Machine backup and file storage). I run the command
fdisk -l and can see the device as /dev/sda1. From there I try to mount the disk to a folder using
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb
I get the error
mount: unknown filesystem type 'hfsplus'
Using suggestions from similar questions, I've installed hfsplus, hfsprogs, hfsutils. I'm still getting the same error. I've read that the kernel may not have been compiled with support for this filetype.
However, at one point a couple of months ago on a Linux build, I plugged in the USB hard drive to the Beaglebone Black, and was able to access both partitions. The drive was automatically mounted, and I was given no issues about the HFS+ file format that the drive partitions are formatted to. I'm not sure where I was able to access the drive, but I believe it may have been in the /mnt or the /media directories.
What changed? I'm not sure what image was running on the Beaglebone Black before when everything just worked, but I'd like to figure it out. Is there a standard Debian (or other) image that automatically mounts the USB drive and handles the HFS+ file format?
