You're right that /boot/grub somehow has gotten read-only. I didn't do that myself, so something else must have done that. Have you any clue you can shareYou are too quick in assuming that there might be a bug somewhere. We don't know
with me as to which package I should re-file this report against?
Jun 09 01:42:55 kmac kernel: hfs: filesystem was not cleanly unmounted, running fsck.hfs is recommended. mounting read-only.
I did have a brief power outage recently. Maybe that's what caused the "not cleanly unmounted".
I'll try unmounting it and running fsck.hfs...
root@kmac:~# fsck.hfs -f -C0 /boot/grub
-bash: fsck.hfs: command not found
Am I missing a package somewhere?
So the only remaining question is "why was hfsprogs not automatically install on a G5 PowerMac?"
Some people find it to be important to install only free software.
If hfsprogs were truly non-free, then an alternative would need to be
found, since hfsprogs provides required functionality.
I read the above links, which lead to this analysis:
Is it really correct that debian-legal has concluded that hfsprogs is
not DFSG-free? Or is the above analysis an opinion from someone who is
not a Debian lawyer?
In this case, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) disagrees, saying "The
Apple Public Source License (APSL) version 2.0 qualifies as a free
software license. Apple's lawyers worked with the FSF to produce a
license that would qualify."
I would generally accept FSF legal analyses and opinions over the legal
(or non-legal) analyses and opinions from anyone associated with any
specific GNU/Linux distribution.
