I just bought a 500GB Maxtor "OneTouch 4" external USB harddrive. What I want, is a filesystem that is readable and writeable on both Fedora and FreeBSD. This is because I am going to use it for backup on both systems.
Fedora uses EXT3, correct?... and FreeBSD is UFS2. I Googled and found that EXT3 is readonly on FreeBSD and UFS2 is readonly on Linux... *sigh*
But then I stumbled over this blog
- he says that there have been plans to include write support for UFS2 in kernel 2.6.21... my kernel is 2.6.24, so I hope he is correct... but I do not know where to go for confirmation?
