This question already has an answer here:

I have an external Western Digital Hard drive with two HFS partitions with journaling disabled.

When I connect it to a computer running Linux (Debian or Ubuntu), frequently both partitions are mounted read-only. In the past, mounting them on my Macbook and executing the command to disable the journaling often worked (even though it would tell me that journaling was already disabled) but I would love to have a solution which works every time.

Thanks!

Edit: In light of Chris Johnsen's comment below - my question is how to mount the filesystem read+write on Linux since it is not automatically doing so itself

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • There was no actual question in your question. Are we to infer that you expect your HFS (probably HFS+?) filesystems to be mounted read+write on Linux? – Chris Johnsen Jul 9 '10 at 11:30
  • Well my question was how to mount the filesystem read+write on Linux since it is not automatically doing so itself. – Opt Jul 11 '10 at 0:43

You can ask Linux to remount the partition read-write with this command (replace hdb2 as appropriate):

mount -o remount,rw /dev/hdb2

Of course, this may or may not fix your problem :)
