The command

mount_ext2fs /dev/ad5s1 /linux

results in the message

mount_ext2fs: /dev/ad5s1: Operation not permitted

and in dmesg, the message

WARNING: R/W mount denied.  Filesystem is not clean - run fsck

Unfortunately, attempting to mount it read-only doesn't change anything :-(

Any suggestions?\

(Incidentally, the linux partition in question was clean, at least
according to Linux).
