I cannot mount my timecapsule-attached HFS disk on ubuntu.

I checked almost the entire forum and all the solutions suggest using cifs. I can mount the drive using cifs, but it is not good enough. First, cifs does not support symlinks. Second, it is very slow.

So, I will very much appreciate your suggestions!


PS: I tried hfs and hfsplus but I get:

mount: special device //btc/SILO does not exist
(btc is the timecapsule and SILO is the attached drive)
