I've backed up some files from a old Powerbook G4 (AluBook), and I used the Mac Partion manager or whatever to first initialize the disk.
It worked, originally, as one large volume, and I copied several files to it. The disk probably has files from 1-2 pre-existing Windows installation on it.
first 2 512b blocks
Here is what the first 2 blocks look like, dumped out into Bash
Using Debian GNU/Linux I see a strange assortment of partitions, not just the one large folder like in an old Mac. (Currently it doesn't read in any Macs either, although it did at least once before).
I would love to mount this drive into Debian, and copy the files!
I have installed all packages related to HFS+, as these probably are needed.
gives me this data...
I am expecting one large drive, 160GB, with about 31GB of data on it (not what is shown below):
