Hello.

After I copied everything with tar|nc to a new harddisk, OSX doesn't boot anymore. I also made a HFS+ filesystem and copied the files there. According to the guys at #gentoo-ppc it's because of missing attributes that can't be copied by linux.
So I would now try to use dd and parted after.

But because I just had a clean OSX installation how would I generally install OSX after gentoo? Is there a way to install it on the free prepared partition and to reinstall yaboot afterwards with the universal-CD?

Here is my layout. Is it generally possible to boot OSX from this last partition?
Code:
# mac-fdisk -l
/dev/hda
        #                    type name                  length   base      ( size )  system
/dev/hda1     Apple_partition_map Apple                     63 @ 1         ( 31.5k)  Partition map
/dev/hda2         Apple_Bootstrap bootstrap               1600 @ 64        (800.0k)  NewWorld bootblock
/dev/hda3         Apple_UNIX_SVR2 swap                  819200 @ 1664      (400.0M)  Linux swap
/dev/hda4         Apple_UNIX_SVR2 root                25165824 @ 820864    ( 12.0G)  Linux native
/dev/hda5         Apple_UNIX_SVR2 home               121634816 @ 25986688  ( 58.0G)  Linux native
/dev/hda6         Apple_UNIX_SVR2 MacOSX               8679984 @ 147621504 (  4.1G)  Linux native

Like I told you in #gentoo-ppc, you can copy files with their resource forks with hfsplusutils and hpcopy.

Thanks, that's the name of the utility.
Is there a way to use it together with netcat over network, like I did with tar?

I am installing OSX from CD because I didn't do a lot of modifications. It lets me choose a volume (partition).
If there's a network way with hpcopy I would overwrite with my old copy.

It's probably easiest to use an NFS share or something similar.
