    Question UFS write support enabled in kernel, but UFS partition mouted as read


    Hi, I've got a raw UFS2 partition image and I would like to write on it. On the web I've found that UFS2 write support in linux is dangerous/experimental, but I wanted to try anyway, so I recompiled my kernel from source and enabled UFS write support but the partition is still mounted as read-only. Why?

    To mount I use this command:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2,rw ./image.img /mnt
    Then I get
    Code:
    mount: warning: /mnt seems to be mounted read-only.
    I think this mean that UFS write support was enabled correctly (because when it wasn't enabled mount gave me an error). However the partition is mounted as read only..

    Thanks in advance.
