thanks a lot, this was helpful and it was my bad. ufstype=44bsd is the correct type. However I can mount just it read-only, even though it should be supported read-write. But it is a big way forward.

for write support you need a kernel with UFS write enable. I can enable support via CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE=y  in next linux-zen version, but absolutely without warranty.

that would be awesome. I can certainly try and let you know if I have any issues or if it works.

CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE
is enabled in linux-zen-5.6.10, which is now in our [testing/gremlins]. This function is still marked as DANGEROUS. ;-)

thanks for the idea, it took me some time to test it but result was the same.
I am not going to install FreeBSD just to try if the UFS support works with it. For me OpenBSD is important and obviously I have to use EXT2/EXT3 for drives I plan to share. Potentially use EXT4 for Linux system as OpenBSD can access EXT2/3 read-write and EXT4 read-only
NTFS might work as well for sharing data between Linux and  OpenBSD. Latter has read-write support on OpenBSD (sysutils/ntfs-3g)
