I have just upgraded my Sun Ultra5 to Woody_r1-ish state. Everything's
working - XFree86-4.1.0woody, devfsd, ext3, enlightenment, sound, etc.
Kernel has the netfilter-bridge-0.0.7 patch. Finally my Ultra5 is as
good as the PCs.
My problem is - I can't write to the UFS SunOS-7 partition. The kernel
has been configured with CONFIG_UFS_FS=m and CONFIG_UFS_WRITE=y. I can
mount the partiton read-write and copy files from it. But when I try
to write to it, ( with cp or dd ) I get a strange error message -
'cannot create regular file XXXX: read-only file system'. 'mount'
shows it to be mounted rw on /sundisk; and the ufs.o module is loaded.
I tried to write to it as root too - but same message.
I have been regularly reading/writing to the UFS partition with the
previous Debian-potato installation before.

I had the same problem some some days ago running Linux (2.4.23)
on a Sun Netra1.
We solved the problem with remounting the sun-ufs partition.
mount -o remount,rw <ufs-device>
