Can anyone tell me the correct command to mount a freebsd partiton under linux?  I believe the partiton is a type165 in BSD terms.

As far as I know, freebsd uses a form of ext2 or ext3, like linux. Try it with those two, or use auto inside fstab.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
1st you need to know which partition going to mount in your linux.

after you know which partition, use mount to mount the partition

e.g. /dev/hdc1 is your freeBSD partition run below command

mount -t ufs /dev/hdc1  /freeBSD  


I have tried:

mount -t ufs /dev/hdc1  /freeBSD  
mount -t ext2 /dev/hdc1  /freeBSD  
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc1  /freeBSD  
do you mean no working ?? what's the out come / error ?? more input will help EE to give out comment
How about just mount /dev/hdc1 /freeBSD

if still no goal

usig fdisk to check the file system type

fdisk /dev/hdc

command : P

to display the partition info. and post the data here may help

If you want to mount to /freeBSD you must first make sure that folder exists!
