Hello, i could find a few topics on HFS+ mounting here and a tutorial on specific HFS+ sharing in OpenWRT but nothing gathered under one topic about a simple a HFS+ share with Omnia.
Maybe we can concentrate the necessary steps and guidelines here (specifically for HFS+) as having spent most of the past two days trying to make sense of different bits and topics i know it would help anyone interested to have it all in one place, and i definitely need this at this point.
From other topics and OpenWRT iv gathered:
creating a ‘Mount Point’ in ‘System’ (LuCI) with device identifiable by ssh ‘blkid’ in many ways but likely the ‘/dev/sda2’ in the case of a HFS+ drive normally formatted by Apple’s ‘DIsk Utility’.
recommended mount point is ‘/mnt/‘drive name’’ in my case /mnt/cloud9
suggested advanced settings are identifying the HFS+ filesystem and running a filesystem pre-check; of all indicated possible options everywhere, the following appears more complete: ‘force,rw,sync’
making sure to install ‘hfsfsck’, ‘kmod-fs-hfsplus’, and ‘mkhfs’ packages available in ‘System’ ‘Software’ and confirming it is mountable by ssh with ‘mount -t hfsplus /dev/sda2 /mnt/cloud9’ - where /dev/sda2 is our desired mount and ‘cloud9’ is our own drive name. this all works for me, then we can find a tutorial here on how to proceed with a ‘NTFS’ formatted drive, so here we could go onto distributing this for HFS+?
packages ‘netatalk’ for the Apple ‘AFP’ protocol and the ‘avahi-daemon’ for advertising the share are recommended, and the OpenWRT TimeMachine tutorial explains this all in great length, but in cases where simple guest login is sufficient it seems that it could be made simpler. in my case my OS X system connects to the Omnia and asks for account login, accepts guest login but ultimately says no cloud9 share exists. connecting via samba successfully mounts /dev/sda1 which is good to know but not what i need.
can you help make this a definitive thread, and me go back to work? cheers and thanks in advance
