Bug Description

While it is currently possible to mount a non-journaling HFS+ (hfsplus) file system read/write, if the volume is not unmounted properly, it will mount read-only.
There are a few instructions on the web on how to compile the neccessary package from open-darwin (now obsolete), and it's possible to find those packages on the web and follow the instructions. Running fsck.hfsplus on the unmounted volume will most likely repair it.
This needs to be maintained in the repositories..

I completely agree. It is also missing in the Gutsy repositories.

I am using hardy and hfsprogs-332.14-1 has this binary.

Changed in hfsprogs:
