Additional File Systems for mounting/Samba/FTP
« on: August 24, 2014, 04:02:52 am »
I would love to see the ability to mount HFS and HFSPlus drives (mac os Drives)

i tried to manually mount it "mount -t hfsplus /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb" and it seems to be missing the filesystem to mount the drive (most linux servers need hfsprogs to mount it.

Sorry, but we're not planning support for HFS as Apple is moving to Samba.
We'll be implementing better/working Samba support for OS X though.

HFS/HFS+ as Hierarchical File System not HTTP File Server.

All that should be needed is kmod-fs-hfsplus :)

It's not quite that simple and Samba is not just an HTTP file server for that matter.
We're not against someone creating support for it, but we will not be doing this in-house.

This is the first I've heard that "Apple is moving to SAMBA". What does that even mean? I have heard nothing about them abandoning HFS+. And OS X has supported SAMBA as a way of accessing Windows systems for a long time.

I think I'm right in saying that SAMBA is a network file access protocol that AFAIK has nothing to do with the file system on the disk, which could be HFS+ (Mac), NTFS (native Windows), FAT32 (older Microsoft), ext3 or ext4 (Linux), or even ZFS.

So the question is: which FILE SYSTEMS are supported, not which access protocols.

Apple is moving away from AFP, not HFS/HFS+, my bad, too much work at the moment, brain mush...  :-\

We might support HFS/HFS+, but it'll not be right now.

I'm interested in the HFS/HFS+ support +1, but also what about ZFS and XFS? It seems that popular filesystems for NAS are not available. Seems straightforward enough with OpenWRT http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/usb.storage

Have you tried adding the packages and testing?

I don't need to mount an OS X disk but I could mount some NFS/NAS drives.

Adding the packages is not a big deal, will know if it works right away. The concern is the version of OpenWRT we are using is a little dated. When I get around to adding my NAS drive, I'll post up results.

As for "officially supported", will wait for Ashok to weigh in.

I went ahead and figured out how to get SAMBA to work on OSX, the file format was a part of the problem. Ended up going with NTFS. Here are the steps I took: http://mcneill.io/nas-timemachine-almond-plus-openwrt/

Nice clean writeup, thanks.

Now I need to mount my NAS box and see what kind of luck I have. Wasn't using it for Time Machine backup but I can, so might as well.
