Disable HFS+ journaling from within Mac OS 9

diskutil does not work in single user mode, unless you start up other system services, as described in another hint on this site, i believe.

In this specific case the above command will not work for solving the journal problem, as the diskutil command will use the journal to update the directory information on the drive, and since the journal is bad, the command will fail.

Disable HFS+ journaling from within Mac OS 9

I made the attempt to use the iBook in Firewire target disk mode on a G4 running 9.2. The firewire icon on the iBook would freeze after about ten seconds, the host G4 would never see it, and would stop responding to mouse clicks about the same time the firewire logo stopped.

Ahhh, those restore disks are sooo far away from me.
