Hi Tru,

I installed rpmforge, dkms and dmks-ufs, how you can see below:

[root at fw ~]# rpm -qva |grep dkms

[root at fw ~]# lsmod |grep ufs
ufs                    64644  0

but I still can't mount the partition:

# mount -t ufs -o ro,ufstype=44bsd /dev/hdb1 /part
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

in the dmes, show this error:

ufs_read_super: bad magic number
