I played around with hfs support in this developer kernel and
penetrated my hfs partion with some paralell cp-s and rm-s
(I copied "the linux kernel" documentation around :-)
After every step I rebootet into MacOs and ran DiskFirstAid (DFA)
but nothing was found. cp and rm complained about problems with the
.finderinfo and .resource directories, but I expected it this way.
I used my iBook for testing.
Is there anything else i _must_ check for a fs to be considered
In case anyone reports a bug to me in this area I'll try to fix
Meanwhile I'll have a look at the hfsutils
( http://www.mars.org/home/rob/proj/hfs/ ) and will start
moving them to HFS+.
I found however some bugs not related to hfs and may reproduce
them in detail in case someone asks:
- the console driver messed up some pixels while editing
- hdparm did not always work correctly
(I use pmud and it calls hdparm depending on the battery load)
Sometimes I got stuck with the message "hda interrupt lost"
