With just a few quick command-line arguments, you can quickly mount a Mac OS X (HFS+) partition from Yellow Dog Linux.
Here we go ...
- Login to a shell or terminal as root.
- mkdir /mnt/macosx [RETURN]
- (YDL 3.0.1) modprobe hfsplus [RETURN]
- (YDL 3.0, you must install the YDL 3.0.1 kernel ... and if "uname -r" returns "2.4.22" you're good to go)
- parted /dev/hdx [RETURN] (where "x" is the drive on which your Mac OS X installation resides).
- From within parted, press "p" and RETURN to print the drive partition table. Take note of the partition where Mac
OS X resides (noted below as "y", ie: /dev/hda7).
- mount /dev/hdxy /mnt/macosx -thfsplus [RETURN]
- cd /mnt/macosx [RETURN]
- ll [RETURN]
