An error dialogue box saying that the fstab is bad and that the mount command does not know of the hfsplus filesystem type.

Description of problem:
Kernel does not support hfsplus period.

Kernel version: 2.6.32-19.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
Happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open fstab in /etc with gedit
2. Add the following as one of the entries
/dev/sdb1                   /media/Leopard                hfsplus        defaults,rw,auto,users       0 0
3. Go to /media and add a new folder named Leopard
4. Open Terminal
5. type in 'su'
6. type in 'mount /media/Leopard' without the single quotes OR double-click the drive under computer from Nautilus
  
Actual results:
An error dialogue box appears saying that my fstab is bad (even though it is not) and that it does not know of the filesystem type hfsplus

Expected results:
The hfsplus drive should be mounted in 'media/Leopard'.

Additional info:

Comment 2 Ric Wheeler 2010-06-01 09:11:55 EDT
hfsplus is not a supported file system in RHEL6.0 and we have no current plans to make it a supported fs.

If you have a RH account team, please work with them to make a case for supporting hfsplus.

Regards,

Ric
