[xubuntu-users] Can't access UFS

Hi :)

I try to access FreeBSD from my Ubuntu install(s), but it doesn't work.

spinymouse at q:/boot$ grep CONFIG_UFS_FS config-3.6.5-rt14
# CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE is not set
spinymouse at q:/boot$ lsmod | grep ufs
spinymouse at q:/boot$ sudo modprobe ufs 
spinymouse at q:/boot$ lsmod | grep ufs
ufs                    74797  0

So for write access I've got to build the kernel again. But when I try
to mount it by using Nautilus (the file browser I use for Xfce 4.10) I get:

Unable to mount 62 GB Volume

Error mounting /dev/sda1 at /media/spinymouse/disk: Command-line `mount
-t "ufs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sda1"
"/media/spinymouse/disk"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount:
wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
