comment Unable to update Ubuntu 10.10 installed in MacBook Pro with dual boot
That's strange you were not able to run gdisk... What happens if you try booting off the other "Linux" partition? Also, you mentioned above that this other Linux partition is on "HD", does that mean "Macintosh HD"? Do you also have an Apple icon to boot into OS X? Also, it would be helpful to go into Disk Utility in OS X and see the list of partitions (their file system types and size). This will help you fix the partition tables (which is probably what you need to do anyway to fix this issue).

comment Dual Boot: access Mac OS HD folders from Ubuntu
Ok, I updated my answer. I hope it is more helpful this time around. Also, if you're going to access your OS X partition a lot, then you should have it mount automatically. I'm sure there's an Ubuntu thread on that.. but you could also post another question (they discourage answering of multiple questions in one question thread).

Ok. Don't bother with the LiveCD. Go into OS X and use the terminal to follow the directions in post #185. That worked for me, so hopefully it will work for you.
