    Hi,
    Did you add ufs support in the kernel.. If I'm not mistaken, you need it:

    Yeap, you will have to recompile and add support for UFS.

    Re:ufs mount in linux

    yeah I have alredy figured out by myself that I need the ufs support, but ufs in linux kernel is broken as I said in the post. I saw a guy who has started building patches for the 2.6 branch which should handle both the new freebsd ufs and old ufs, but I got it fixed after a while, found an old computer and installed obsd on it and mounted the hd, but thnx for answering
