Disable HFS+ journaling from within Mac OS 9
Authored by: thedano on Jan 23, '05 07:00:01PM

I'd like to thank anyone for a very timely posting, as last night my iBook decided that it was time to corrupt the journal files.

It's nice when a piece of engineering works smoothly, but a real bear when that OS9 booting machine, external hard drive and restore disks are all over three hundred miles away...

Has anyone figured out how to delete the .journ* files from single user mode? DiskWarrior has quit with an error about not being able to deal with the journaling files. fsck has decided to forsake me with I/O timeouts. Mounting the disk gets me a little further, but root# rm .jour* tells me "Operation not permitted" and disabling the journal with diskutil returns something about "Carbon Lazy Values"

A little help over here?

I've been through that before (carbon lazy values ...) and what I understood is that some kernel extensions hadn't yet been loaded, or else some needed frameworks weren't yet available to the running system (sorry, I don't fully understand the system). Once I made the system execute more of /etc/rc, then everything worked under single-user mode. I think I copied the rc script to a temp file and sourced it from the single-user shell ... not positive but I think I omitted the SystemStarter command at the end; Larry.
