    Forgive the zombification of this thread, but could someone give me a clue as to how to install this on my Pandora?

    It looks like regular ARM binaries, so just extract it to somewhere and add that directory to your PATH:



    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/hfsutils

    If you want to make this permanent, you can add it to ~/.bashrc (otherwise you'll have to change the PATH every time you start a new terminal session).

    Sorry to ask but If that's confirmed to work, could I ask that this be explained fully to all potential users (It sounds like its a required tool to allow Pandora and MacOS to speak easy) , the full process required to install it is clearly detailed and that mention of it, is preserved to the tips&tweaks threads please?

    Either i've done something wrong(more than likely), or this works but doesn't support hfs+ partitions. Or both.

    Well, I haven't tried it myself - the only HFS disk I have is inside an old iBook. I don't know why it wouldn't work, though.


    (I'm not sure how those utilities actually work - usually filesystem drivers are loadable kernel modules, if they aren't compiled in.)

    Never heard of FUSE? However, the hfsutils package on my system only depends on libc :blink:

    You're right, of course, but I haven't really seen FUSE used with non-virtual filesystems. I don't know if the Pandora comes with FUSE either.

    Well, it has to have FUSE (at least with the codec pack) because of ntfs-3g, which is probably the most popular FUSE driver for non-virtual filesystems :p
