I can mount hfs usb drive only as root

Uwe Brauer


I used gparted to format an external usb drive with hsf.

When I stick it in automount mount the stick, but only as root.

Sudo chown -R user /media/user/MacStick


Then I tried

sudo mount -t hfs -o force,rw /dev/sdb1 /media/oub/Mac

And obtained
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

Finally I run

sudo /sbin/fsck.hfs /dev/sdb1
** /dev/sdb1
** Checking HFS volume.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any help would be very wellcome
