Linux Bleeenux

Apparently Linux in the year 2009 still can’t mount an OS X formatted external USB drive. In particular if there is a GUID Partition Table on the disk.

fdisk says there is no partition map, gparted crashes but does show some kind of partition map. However, all possible variants of mount fails to mount the disk.

If I plug the disk into my MacBook Pro laptop it immediately pops up mounted on the desktop. So how hard can it be? Now I’ll have to resort to copy the 650GB of data with scp over the network from my laptop to the macmini. That’s going to take a while…
