Comment 6 Vladis Dronov 2018-07-10 11:27:13 UTC
Note:

An HFS filesystem is not built for any Red Hat products except for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which is no longer in development and is in Extended Life Phase (https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/#Extended_Life_Cycle_Phase).
