I recently had the need to mount an
UFS2 (NetBSD) partition under GNU/Linux, and while this is surprising, a standard Linux distro, Debian in my case, is not able to mount it in read/write mode.
I came across this project https://github.com/DanielO/fuse-ufs2 which has basic
UFS2 read/write support. It is not very stable, I made it crash a couple of times while using
vim on the mounted partition, but it does support simple operations like
rm and such.
Here’s how to build and use it under Debian Wheezy:
Comment out the
__st_ino. Do the same operation for
xvda3 with the actual partition you need to mount.
You can now access your
UFS2 partition :)
