    For HFSX ( MAC OSX case sensitive partition ) label is not displayed when calling blkid

    Is a bug or a limitation of blkid?

    Any comment is welcome

      Can you send me a specification what the HFSX superblock looks like, and upload the first 4k or of an HFSX partition for testing purposes?  I'm happy to expand what blkid can support, but I don't have time to go out of my way to research every single filesystem under the sun.

      If you can do the research and then file a wishlist bug, I'm happy to add it.

          I've checked in support for hfsx detection to the e2fsprogs git repository.
