Edit kernel to support UFS read/write
I would like to enable read/write support for the UFS file system.
Basically, I need to be able to edit files on a Solaris HD in Kubuntu.
I have 1 HD with Kubunu installed on it, and the other is a Solaris HD. (which needs to be mounted as read/write).
This is what I have done:
Installed Kubuntu 7.04.
attempted a "make allyesconfig" , and then "make bzImage" <- this step fails.
This is what I need help with:
1: after installation of kubuntu, what steps need to be done in order for me to mount the Solaris HD as read/write?
Can anyone help me with a step by step guide to this? This would be appreciated.

You want to compile your kernel again and that's what you are doing wrong. UFS is Unix File System used on Macs, BSDs and Sun operating systems.
Recompiling a kernel would take you 20 or more times in vain.
You *can* really write on UFS systems directly on Linux. Type modinfo ufs in a shell and it will give an output similar to this:
filename: /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/fs/ufs/ufs.ko license: GPL srcversion: 857220101CA9FD677BEB4E4 depends: vermagic: 2.6.22-14-generic SMP mod_unload 586
