HFS+ can't chown/chmod
I have the following in my /etc/fstab
/dev/hdd10 /mnt/caterpillah hfsplus rw 0 0
When I mount the partition and do [$ mount | grep hdd] I get:
/dev/hdd10 on /mnt/caterpillah type hfsplus (rw)
However, the disk was obviously part'ed on an osx machine, and suid's and uid's are off (501/80), so I need to change them:
# chown myuser:mygroup /mnt/my_drive
chown: changing ownership of '/mnt/my_drive' : Read-only file system
the same thing happens with chmod. If the drive is mounted r/w, why can't I change permissions or ownership?
