   5          BSD and derivate versions of Unix (such as SunOS, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
   6          OpenBSD and NeXTstep) use a file system called UFS. Some System V
   7          Unixes can create and mount hard disk partitions and diskettes using
   8          this file system as well. Saying Y here will allow you to read from
   9          these partitions; if you also want to write to them, say Y to the
  10          experimental "UFS file system write support", below. Please read the
  11          file <file:Documentation/filesystems/ufs.txt> for more information.
  13          The recently released UFS2 variant (used in FreeBSD 5.x) is
  14          READ-ONLY supported.
  16          Note that this option is generally not needed for floppies, since a
  17          good portable way to transport files and directories between unixes
  18          (and even other operating systems) is given by the tar program ("man
  19          tar" or preferably "info tar").
  21          When accessing NeXTstep files, you may need to convert them from the
  22          NeXT character set to the Latin1 character set; use the program
  23          recode ("info recode") for this purpose.
  25          To compile the UFS file system support as a module, choose M here: the
  26          module will be called ufs.
  28          If you haven't heard about all of this before, it's safe to say N.

  32        depends on UFS_FS && EXPERIMENTAL
  33        help
  34          Say Y here if you want to try writing to UFS partitions. This is
  35          experimental, so you should back up your UFS partitions beforehand.
  37config UFS_DEBUG
  38        bool "UFS debugging"
  39        depends on UFS_FS
  40        help
  41          If you are experiencing any problems with the UFS filesystem, say
  42          Y here.  This will result in _many_ additional debugging messages to be
  43          written to the system log.
