Mounting HFS+ volumes under Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2007
Just thought I would pass this on, as it is not in any of the man pages! This drove me nuts for the better part of a day until I found a reference to this on some obscure web site discussing the kernel source code for FC6. I'm posting it here in the hopes that it will be useful for someone.
I was trying to retrieve some data on a hard drive from a
Powerbook G4 (the so-called "TiBook") that was running Mac OS X 10.3. That version of the OS uses Apple's HFS+ file system. I wanted to mount that hard drive on one of my Linux systems running FC6 so I can take the data off.
The man pages only mention HFS as a valid filesystem, so I tried mounting the volume with:
mount -t hfs <blah blah>
It would mount the hard drive alright, but it would only show me a few things on there, along with a readme file that says that I needed to upgrade to a version of MacOS greater than 8.6 or something like that. (I don't have the drive hooked up as I write this, so I can't go

stable Linux. Truth or Myth?
location: linux.com - date: October 11, 2011
I want to know if there is any such thing as a stable desktop Linux distro, or is it just a myth? Since I started playing with Linux I've probably tried more than a dozen different flavors on about a dozen different platforms. I can't be real specific because each one had its own problems; but for example, I've just re-installed Linux Mint 11. Within an hour, Firefox crashed without warning or explanation and shortly after that, The OS itself crashed hard and I had to restart the computer. These are typical problems I've had with Linux since I started playing with it more than 10 years ago. I would really like to use Linux to replace my Mac, but so far I haven't found one that I can count on. Is there a reliable distro? Or is there a way to make a buggy distro more reliable? So far I've tried most of the popular ones: Red Hat, Fedora, openSUSE, Ubuntu, Mint, Linspire, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. Of all of them, Mint 6 was my favorite, but each suc

Printers in Linux Mint and Ubuntu
location: linux.com - date: November 12, 2011
I have 2 network printers available to me - HP Officejet 6500 and Lexmark Prevail Pro 705. The HP installs in both Ubuntu and Mint (they are, after all basically the same). However, I can't get my Lexmark to install "out of the box", as there are no drivers included in either Distro. As I am a newbie to Linux, I am not yet comfortable working on the command line. Is there a simple, safe way to get the Lexmark installed? The Lexmark site implies that this printer is not compatible with Ubuntu-like OS newer than 10.10
Linux on a tablet
location: linux.com - date: January 25, 2012
This is my first post. So please let me know if I am putting this on the wrong section of the forum. I have seen the ipads and droid tablets out there. But I want a tablet running Linux. I would love to have Debian or Ubuntu on a tablet. But I can't find any companies selling such devices. I have seen the news stories out there that claim Ubuntu might have an announcement on an Ubuntu tablet in over a year from now.
Well I know Linux can run on almost anything. So why not an existing tablet? Can anyone point me in the right direction to a guide to installing Debian or Ubuntu on an existing Tablet? I currently do not own any tablet hardware. So any hardware that will be best suited for this project I will see about purchasing.
Thanks for your time and attention.
Need help choosing Linux distro
location: linux.com - date: October 19, 2009
I wanted to try out Linux for a while now, but alot of things have been stopping me. And since im about to uninstall my Windows XP and get Windows 7 I finally decided to get myself together and try out one of the Linux distros.
The most crucial thing that stopped me from installing Linux before was that it has alot of distros to choose from and I dont know which one to choose and I didnt want to waist time trying all of them out. So here I am asking you guys to help me choose :laugh:
P.S. Ive never seen Linux in my life... always worked with Windows..
Oh there is one more thing that bugs me... Im afraid that if im gonna run Linux I wont be able to use programs I used on Windows or play games like Lineage 2, Wow, CS, or the new Aion MMORPG... or will meet incompatible file formats... well u understand where im comming from...
Another P.S. I have read the thread "Choosing a distro: Pros and Cons from real users" it didnt help much im not familiar what GNOME or LA
Linux for College
location: linux.com - date: August 7, 2011
I'm a soon to be college student who, after looking at the price of Macs and the unreliability of PCs, am attempting to dip my toes into Linux.
I am looking to get a laptop that can get me online and using a word processor. This would be a school computer for everyday use.
I would appreciate your advice on anything Linux. Are there any good beginner level articles I should read? What are some spec's I should keep in mind whilst laptop shopping? Any suggestions on DIstros?
Overall, what is the most important thing to keep in mind when using and learning about Linux.
Learning linux severs: Red Hat or Centos ?
location: linux.com - date: April 26, 2011
Hi there, I have a question, please. I'm new to linux and I'm learning with unix academy training DVDs. The training comes bundled with many Linux distros, and I initially installed and been using Ubuntu for my lessons (it was a random choice). I do have IT experience, but not with Linux (databases, app servers, win admin). I know that Red Hat is most widely used, when it comes to large scale enterprise installations.
Now I'm stuck in a confusion: is CentOS really the same as Red Hat, and could it be used for training for Red Hat? Are these two absolutely identical?
