My desktop dual boots Gentoo Linux and FreeBSD. When I installed Gentoo at the time I decided on splitting certain directories in distinct partition, so the I created a partition strictly for portage and opted for the ReiserFS filesystem.
Today I wanted to cut down on the bandwith and decided to copy over a needed distfile from the ReiserFS partition to FreeBSD.
Bellow you’ll find the procedure to mount a ReiserFS in read-only mode. Do notice than the entire procedure is performed only on the FreeBSD system:
% man reiserfs
# kldload reiserfs.ko
# mount -t reiserfs -o ro /dev/ad4s5 /mnt
