Hi all!

I have a few new (and old) problems.

First it was possible to access (rw) my hfsplus partition right away. I made the last MacOSX upgrade recently (on the gentoo side I installed kppp) and now I get this.
mount still shows me a rw-access:
/dev/hda3 on /mnt/data type hfsplus (rw)
If I try to copy something it is suddently read-only (my fstab is ok):
cp: cannot create regular file `/mnt/data/todo': Read-only file system

Thus obviously something changed. Does somebody know what happend or better what to do?

My modem experience is stil disappointingly. I emerged hcfusbmodem, configured it with hcfusbconfig and tried to query the modem with kppp. I got "Unable to open Modem". Is there something new concerning modem support for the PB? Does it really work?

My last question is quite easy to answer I think (in fact I´m just too lazy to seek the handbook...).
How can I persuade emerge to download only? It is very time-consumptive to compile something. kppp with all dependencies took more than 6 h!

Thanks a lot for help or hints!!

Cheers,
h.

I expected that. However, hopefully it is a question of time.

Regarding the rw problem for hfsplus, I found a workaround on a debian's ppc mailing-list:

First mount your partition with hpmount (comes with sys-fs/hfsplusutils):
Code:
$ hpmount /dev/hda9
*** Warning: You are about to open '/dev/hda9' for writing ***
*** Do you really want to do that ? (y/n) *** y


hpmount does its magic and makes the partition write-accessible for linux again... now you can unmount and mount with the standard mount command:
Code:
$ hpumount
$ mount -w -t hfsplus /dev/hda9 /mnt/osx


This has always worked for me...

the hp* commands are a different thing altogether (userland applications), not kernel components, and they require using other userland applications to copy files, etc.

I suspect you were using a patched kernel, and maybe you updated to a new one that doesn't have these patches?

Also the modem drivers for that machine are not part of the kernel proper IIRC .. they are an add on that you have to do yourself. I don't have more details to give you , but hopefully this is enough to allow you to find what you need to know.

Hi!

Thanks for your replies!
hpmount worked fine, no problem with writing anymore ;) Thus it wasn´t a kernel issue. Maybe apple itself altered something (because of the update?). However.
What do you mean with "kernel proper IIRC"? Somebody here said compile the modem stuff from tar-balls, but I emerged it. That seems to be a real long-term-hassle...
Greetings,

As you may have noticed by now, compiling is something you do a lot of in Gentoo... (One could almost say that's the point of using Gentoo) 8)

Of course you are right. But it is a difference to just emerge somepackage (with all dependencies solved) or to compile it by hand. Ok, that is often not such a big deal; what I meant was I do expect that having that modem functional will be a long way, because the driver just don´t work proper (yet).
Cheers,
